1. “A huge void in our lives.” 23-year-old Saskia Jones has been named as the second person killed in the London terror attack.
Three of the five people who were killed or wounded in the London stabbing attack were former Cambridge University students or staff members.
The two fatalities have been identified as Saskia Jones, 23, and Jack Merritt, 25, who died in the attack on Friday near London Bridge.
“Both were graduates of the University of Cambridge and were involved in the Learning Together program, Jack as a co-ordinator and Saskia as a volunteer,” police said on Sunday.
Jones’s family described her as having “a great passion for providing invaluable support to victims of criminal injustice, which led her to the point of recently applying for the police graduate recruitment program, wishing to specialise in victim support.
“This is an extremely painful time for the family,” they added. “Saskia will leave a huge void in our lives.”
Merritt's father, David, shared to Twitter: "R.I.P Jack: you were a beautiful spirit who always took the side of the underdog".
His family further said: "Jack lived his principles; he believed in redemption and rehabilitation, not revenge, and he always took the side of the underdog."
