A MAN left stranded after the London Bridge terrorist attack on Saturday night has shown his gratitude to two strangers who allowed him to stay at their home.
George Moss, 22, was unable to contact his family or friends after he lost his phone and police set up a cordon between Borough Market and Elephant and Castle.
After borrowing a phone from a journalist at the scene, Mr Moss got in touch with Holly Robinson and Mary Lynch, who had tweeted that those unable to go home could stay with them in nearby Vauxhall.
He said: “I went towards Vauxhall and found Holly and Mary, who very kindly gave me a place to stay. [Without them] I would have been in a pickle. I wouldn’t have anywhere else to go.
“Having someone so close and so willing to help makes a massive difference.”
Dozens of Londoners and businesses opened their doors to stranded people by sharing offers on social media.
Nadine Stares wrote: “Sofa bed available if you are stranded due to this sad incident at London Bridge #SofaForLondon.”
Singer and broadcaster Mo Ansar tweeted: “Mosques, churches, temples and gurdwaras are open for the public in London. Seek shelter, food and safety if you need it.”
