NOR­MAL­ITY re­turned to Bor­ough Market as it opened its doors for the first time since the London Bridge ter­ror at­tack .

A minute si­lence was held at 10am on Wed­nes­day as London Mayor Sadiq Khan and me­dia mogul Ru­pert Mur­doch were among the crowd to pay trib­ute to the eight vic- tims killed in the at­tack on Satur­day, June 3.

Traders were keen to get back to their daily rou­tine, wel­com­ing back shop­pers, as restau­rants also started busi­ness again.

Chair of trus­tees of Bor­ough Market, Don­ald Hys­lop, said: “Come here to­day, come here at the week­end, come here when you can, it’s your market.

“Strong and to­gether, London is open. Bor­ough Market is open.”

“We were re­ally keen to get back as soon as we could to trad­ing be­cause its their peo­ple’s liveli­hoods.

“But we also need to re­spect and re­mem­ber peo­ple who were af­fected by what hap­pened here.”

Eight peo­ple were killed in the at­tack which hap­pened around 10am on Satur­day June 3.

In­quests opened into the deaths of the vic­tims on Tues­day June 13.
