Railway arch decorated in memory of London Bridge terror attack victims

Street artist Jimmy C, known in London for his work paying tribute to David Bowie and William Shakespeare, has produced a major work of art in memory of the London Bridge terror attack.

The work shows a series of hearts floating in space and is painted under one of Network Rail’s arches on Stoney Street, in Southwark.

Eight people were killed and dozens injured after a van driven by three Muslim extremists drove into pedestrians on London Bridge before launching a knife attack in Borough Market.

“The terror attacks shocked everyone who loves our city,” said Jimmy (James Cochran).

“It is a great honour to be able to create a lasting image to the memory of those who lost their lives and to the resilience and spirit of London.”

Network Rail’s Eddie Burton, who manages community rail projects and worked with Jimmy C on the project, added: “We’ve worked closely with Jimmy C in the past and knew he would create something beautiful for London on our arch.”

Network Rail previously worked with Jimmy C on a Shakespeare portrait on Clink Street, in Southwark.
