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.

Godfrey Bloom, the skidmark currently trolling Jack Merritt’s dad, has a public profile of sorts because he used to be Nigel Farage’s flatmate. Make of that what you will.

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

The right wing press - better known as the campaigning arm of the Tory party - trying to use the death of Jack Merritt to advance hateful causes he dedicated his life to fighting is beyond nauseating, beyond sickening, just a disgusting disgrace.

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

Father of Jack Merritt confirms again he’s had no contact from PM or No 10 about this son PM spokesman said y’day Johnson had “expressed his deepest condolences to Mr Merritt for his tragic loss” (perhaps they meant via TV interviews/public comments rather than direct contact)

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

Disgusting to see @BorisJohnson  pretend not to campaign while doing all he can to politicise and campaign around the terror attack. If only he had a fraction of the class and dignity of Jack Merritt’s father
