A Fijian woman, living with her family in London, described how just the previous night, she was in the ‘same spots’ where Londoners were stabbed and mowed down by Jihadi terrorists.

The Daily Mail reported three Jihadi terrorists were shot dead by armed police after killing seven people and injuring 48 others in a horrific van and knife rampage in central London

Lorraine Raiwalui-Suka is working for the High Commission of Australia in London.

She and her family are safe but earlier on the night of the attack one of her sons was caught up in the middle of the what she as described as ‘chaos’.

“Last night while the neighbourhood was in chaos, we sat in our living room partially observing people walking down the road from the scene and the scores of sirens that were whizzing past,” Mrs Raiwalui-Suka said.

“My son was returning from working at an Elton John concert at the Harlequins stadium.

“We were all accounted for and safe at 1.15am this morning.

“People have died from this horrific attack.

“I can’t stop crying. May they RIP,” she added.

“We were overwhelmed with what was happening.

“People were being directed to walk down our way because it’s the route to access the next bridge, the iconic Tower Bridge which get people back to the other side of the River Thames.

“I was in those same exact spot with my cousin and her friends the previous night on a girl’s night out.

“We took pictures at the very same spots certain stabbings took place.”

The tragedy comes less than 12 days after the Manchester terror attack and 10 weeks after the Westminster attack.

Britain’s terror threat level remains at severe after it was raised to critical in the week after the Manchester attack.
