Floral contributions and tributes following the recent attacks
23 June 2017
Following the terror attacks at London Bridge and Borough Market, we have all been moved by the floral and individual tributes left for the victims.
The tributes were removed on Monday 26 June, following a blessing from the Dean of Southwark Cathedral. All memorabilia, cards and individual messages will be passed to the victims’ families or kept safely, and the flowers turned into compost to be used at a dedicated site nearby.
We are developing plans for a permanent memorial and will consult fully with those directly affected by the attacks and the wider community.
Books of condolence remain open in Southwark Cathedral and the council’s offices at 160 Tooley Street.
