The images of people fleeing as they were being evacuated from the London Bridge area last night following a series of terror attacks have been frightening to watch for many across the world.

However one image of a man who refused to leave his pint behind while he was being evacuated has become a surprising symbol of hope for Londoners. The man was seen on Sky News with his pint in hand as he left the area. 

The image of the man determined to hang on to his ridiculously overpriced pint has become a symbol that many on Twitter has declared to be exemplary of the London spirit.
