Roy said yesterday: “Writing my book has been therapeutic and actually helped me get over and process what happened.

“I needed advice and it was so hard for me. Since what happened, I can no longer work because of my injuries – mentally and physically.

“I still need physio to move the tendons in my arm. That moment when I stood up to the terrorists defined my life.


“I hope people enjoy reading my story of what happened.”

Jihadists Khuram Shazad Butt, 27, Rachid Redoune, 30, and 22-year-old Youssef Zaghba drove a van into pedestrians on London Bridge before attacking drinkers in Borough Market on June 3, 2017.
