Defiant tweets that show Londoners will never be cowed by terrorism

‘London is the city that endured the Blitz – it’s got this’

Yesterday, London came under attack, and innocent people were killed. The plan was to show that these things can happen under our noses, in broad daylight, in one of the safest parts of our city – to make us afraid.
