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.

This man paid London prices for a pint. He was not going to let the #LondonAttacks stop him from enjoying it.
