A Dagenham man was among more than 40 injured in Saturday night’s terrorist attack in London

Brett Freeman, from Dagenham, was enjoying a night out with friends when he was stabbed four times after three men – later shot dead by police in Borough Market– drove into pedestrians on London Bridge before stabbing members of the public.

His friend Darren Mole posted a picture of Brett recovering in hospital and hailed him a “soldier”.

Dagenham-based football team May and Bakers tweeted: “Thoughts with our midfield general from last season. Speedy recovery Brett!”

Seven people, including Canadian Chrissy Archibald, died during the attack.

Twelve people were arrested during a related raid at a block of flats in Barking yesterday – one man since has been released – and another has taken place in Dagenham this morning.

A gofundme page was set up to support Brett, a father who is due to get married soon.

More than £1,600 has already been raised, and donations can be made at gofundme.com/brett-the-warrior-london-victim
