The woman killed in Friday’s London Bridge attack has been named by police as Saskia Jones.
The 23-year-old Cambridge University graduate, from Stratford-upon-Avon, was fatally stabbed alongside another ex-student, Jack Merritt.
The boss of the venue where the attack began which killed the pair said “the building turned into a nightmare”.
Toby Williamson, of Fishmongers’ Hall, said staff who fought attacker Usman Khan believed he was wearing a bomb.
Two men took chairs, fire extinguishers and narwhal tusks, which were hanging on the wall, to fend off Khan, driving him out of the building.
Khan, 28, a convicted terrorist who was released from prison in December 2018, was later shot dead by police on London Bridge.
The families of Mr Merritt and Ms Jones have both paid tribute to their loved ones.
