Mural unveiled in memory of London Bridge terror attacks

A street artist has produced a major piece of art in memory of the London Bridge terror attacks.

James Cochran, also known as Jimmy C, has previously created works of art paying tribute to David Bowie and William Shakespeare and his latest piece, which shows a series of hearts floating in space, has been painted under one of Network Rail’s arches on Stoney Street, Southwark.

Jimmy said: “The terror attacks shocked everyone who loves our city. It is a great honour to be able to create a lasting image to the memory of those who lost their lives and to the resilience and spirit of London.”

Network Rail’s Eddie Burton, who manages community rail projects and worked with Jimmy C on the project, added: “We’ve worked closely with Jimmy C in the past and knew he would create something beautiful for London on our arch.”

On June 3, 2017, eight people were killed when three attackers drove a van into pedestrians on London Bridge, launching a knife attacking in Borough Market afterwards.
