Spaniards caught in terror tell of ordeal and how they helped

  • A bar owned by Sergio Fariña was targeted by the London Bridge and Borough Market attackers

Borough Market in London is an area heavily frequented by the city’s Spanish expatriate community. On Saturday night many Spanish residents and visitors were in the area and shared their accounts of their narrow escapes on social media and with journalists.

One of the most heroic accounts of the night came from workers and customers at the bar managed by Spaniard Sergio Fariña. Sergio, who has lived in London for sixteen years, can be seen in a CCTV video circulated by media closing windows and holding his weight against the door as the knife-wielding attackers unsuccessfully tried to get in.
