AN Australian man who was injured during the London stabbing frenzy has told how he "dodged, ducked and weaved" as he was being attacked by a knife-wielding terrorist.

Andrew Morrison, an electrician from Darwin, spoke of his ordeal as he tried to staunch the bleeding from a neck wound in a video posted to social media.

"He got me but I dodged it, I ducked and weaved," he said

"He looked like, I hate because, you know, I know the thing with Muslims and terrorism, but he looked like a f***ing Muslim terrorist," he said.

Mr Morrison's sister Katrina said they were just happy that he was safe.

"Yes my brother was involved," she said. "We're currently sorting out his flight home... Yeah right now we are just happy he is safe," she said.

Two other Australians, one New Zealander, as well as citizens from Canada, Spain and France are among those affected in the London Bridge terror attack that killed seven people and injured 48 on Saturday.

The Canadian victim has been identified as Chrissy Archibald who was living in Europe ahead of her wedding, reported. Ms Archibald is the first of the seven victims to be identified.

In a statement, her devastated family said: "We grieve the loss of our beautiful, loving daughter and sister. She had room in her heart for everyone and believed strongly that every person was to be valued and respected.

"She lived this belief working in a shelter for the homeless until she moved to Europe to be with her fiance. She would have had no understanding of the callous cruelty that caused her death.

"Please honour her by making your community a better place. Volunteer your time and labour or donate to a homeless shelter.

"Tell them Chrissy sent you."

As of Monday morning, 36 people remained in hospital with 21 of those listed in a critical or serious condition.
Mr Morrison is the second Australian to be named along with Queensland woman Candice Hedge.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said consular staff were working to confirm details of the third injured person.

"I spoke to our High Commissioner, Alexander Downer, a short while ago, and the three Australians are the only ones that we know have been affected in terms of physical injury, but obviously at any one time, there are about 130,000

 

 

Australians living in the United Kingdom, many in London," she told the Nine Network this morning.

Ms Hedge was stabbed in the throat after a white van drove into pedestrians and attackers emerged with knives in a busy area of South London.

She told friends and family in Australia on Facebook that she been hurt, but the knife missed her windpipe and main arteries.

"Hey everyone, just so you know I'm doing OK. Bit of pain but I will survive. Thanks for your thoughts and well wishes. Love to all," she wrote.

Ms Hedge was dining in London on Saturday night with her boyfriend when she was stabbed in the neck.

She was briefly in a coma but is now awake and speaking with friends.

Her father, Ross Hedge, said Candice thought she had successfully hid from attackers, but one of the armed men came back for her when he saw her under a table.

"She got to hide and thought she was good enough, but just at the last minute he saw her and came back and stabbed her," Mr Hedge told media in Queensland.

"She actually got behind a table. She said they were leaving and he saw her at the last minute and came back."

Mr Hodge said his daughter was left with "just a stab wound in the throat somewhere".

"But it's all good, there's no major damage," he said.

New Zealand man, Oliver Dowling, 32, was injured along with his girlfriend, Marie Bondeville. Mr Dowling's sister posted on Facebook that he is recovering after a four-hour surgery after having been stabbed.

"Doctors are very happy with how he's come out the other side," she wrote.

"A massive thank to the University of London Hospital for their tireless efforts in helping my brother out!!"

Meanwhile, a man stabbed four times in the terror incident has been described by a friend as "a soldier".

Friends praised Brett Freeman, who was pictured lying in a hospital bed.
