A claims specialist for VIP clients of Aurum Holdings has described how she rescued people running in terror from the scene of Saturday’s attack at London Bridge.
Samyna Motalib lives just two streets away from Borough Market, where three terrorists indiscriminately stabbed dozens of victims.
Ms Motalib told the Evening Standard that she reacted when she she heard awful screaming coming from the market.
“I turned and fled. I ran into my home and saw police with guns coming past my window.
“I thought I just needed to help people, it was a natural instinct.
“I walked out and was getting people to come into our home to take shelter. There were a couple of tourists and two young girls. They were all pretty shocked.
“We offered for them to stay the night, but they wanted to get home,” Ms Motalib described.
“I am a Muslim and their barbaric act had nothing to do with my religion,” the 29-year old continued.
“They are just insane.”
