Fishmongers’ Hall: MI5 and police failures contributed Saskia Jones and Jack Merritt’s deaths

News Correspondent

Jack Merritt was 25 when he was stabbed to death in the London Bridge terror attack, and Saskia Jones just 23.

An inquest jury declared they had been unlawfully killed and a series of damning failures by police and security agencies contributed to their deaths. The UK’s most senior counter terrorism officer today apologised to their families, as the jury said agencies had been “blind” to the risks posed by Usman Khan.
