Swedish brewery dedicates beer to man who fought London Bridge terrorists
Swedish brewery Frequency Beer Works has launched a new ale as a tribute to Millwall supporter Roy Larner, who single-handedly fought three knife-wielding London Bridge terrorists with his bare hands.
Earlier this month, 47-year-old Larner was at the Black & Blue restaurant and bar in London when three terrorists began attacking people after mounting the pavement outside in a van.
Larner told The Sun: "They had these long knives and started shouting about Allah. Then it was, ‘Islam, Islam, Islam’.
"Like an idiot, I shouted back at them. I thought: ‘I need to take the p*** out of these b*******’."
"I took a few steps towards them and said: ‘F*** you, I’m Millwall’. So they started attacking me."
Larner was stabbed eight times and rushed to St Thomas’s Hospital, where he had to undergo a surgery as he suffered severe wounds to his head, chest, and fingers.
Frequency Beer Works stated on its website: "We were humbled and impressed to read about Millwall supporter Roy Larner, who single-handedly stepped in against the terrorists in London, shouting 'F*** you, I’m Millwall', saving countless lives by drawing the attention of the attackers, giving others the possibility to run to safety.
"We salute him and have made a special edition of our bitter available in his honour. A portion of the proceedings will be donated to the fund started in his name."
The brewery has created a 5% English bitter in tribute to his bravery.
Frequency expects to distribute the beer in the UK soon.
