French chef from Coq d'Argent died in terror attack

A French chef who worked at the Coq d'Argent restaurant in the City of London has been named as one of the eight people who were killed in the London Bridge terrorist attack on Saturday night.

Sebastien Belanger, 36, had been watching the Champions League final football match at a pub just prior to the atrocity, which involved three men who deliberately targeted pedestrians in a white van on London Bridge before going on a rampage with knives in and around busy bars and restaurants in Borough Market.

The news of Belanger's death follows the confirmation earlier today that Alexandre Pigeard, a French waiter who worked at Boro Bistro in Borough Market, also died.

It is now believed that three French nationals died in the attack. Alongside Belanger and Pigeard, Xavier Thomas, 45, was also killed.

A total of 48 people were also injured in the incident.

The other victims from Saturday night who have been named so far include Chrissy Archibald, 30, a social worker from Canada; Kirsty Boden, 28, a nurse from Australia; James McMullan, 32, a web entrepreneur from London; and Sara Selenak, 21, from Australia.
