@gregjames @bellamackieT @DavidOlusogah @BarackObamae @BBCSounds moving story of the impact of Jack Merritt, who was murdered in the terrorist attack at London Bridge a year ago, on the lives of the young people he mentored.

I feel bad for Merritt Corrigan. But in terms of her job: anyone who was able to be "conned" or "fooled" by Jack Burkman and Jacob Wohl at this point (or anyone who trusted them in the first place) should not be involved in government work.
Here’s Dave Merritt, whose son Jack was killed in the London Bridge attack, talking to me about Boris Johnson’s response. He accuses the Prime Minister of using the attack to “score some points in the election”.
Today we gathered at Guildhall to remember the lives of Saskia Jones and Jack Merritt. My deepest sympathies are with their families. They were two wonderful young people who were taken from us in the awful attack on London Bridge. In their memory we must build a world of peace.
RIP Jack Merritt, 25. A fine, inspiring young man senselessly murdered while he was trying to help others. As his father said, a 'beautiful spirit who always took the side of the underdog.' Feel so sad for his poor family. #londonbridgeattack
EXCLUSIVE: Father of Jack Merritt tells me about the awful day his son was killed and accuses Boris Johnson of politicising his son’s death. “Instead of seeing a tragedy, Boris Johnson saw an opportunity.” On Sky News at 2pm
This is a beautiful piece about the inspiring Jack Merritt by his loving dad - and should shame those who’ve tried to use his death to further an agenda of hate
