Second Australian confirmed dead following London terror attack

A second Australian has been killed in the London Bridge terror attack.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop confirmed the tragic news in a statement released on Wednesday.

“The Australian Government is deeply saddened to confirm that two Australians have been killed in the London Terrorist attack,” Ms Bishop said.


“We continue to work with the United Kingdom Authorities who have asked that we wait official confirmation of the identities of the victims, and for the families to be officially notified, before we release their names.”

South Australian woman Kirsty Boden is believed to be among the two killed, after her family released a statement confirming the news overnight.
