Man Seen Fleeing The London Attacks While Still Holding His Beer Has Been Identified

By 06.05.17

On Sunday an unidentified man was spotted fleeing the scene of the London Attacks while still holding on to his beer. Many hailed him as embodying the “Symbol Of London Spirit.”

Now, according to a Facebook post reported to be by a member of his family by the Liverpool ECHO, this man who has suddenly become a legend has apparently been identified.

A man who became an unlikely national hero after fleeing from the London terror attacks still clutching his pint is believed to be from Merseyside.

A photo circulated online shows the man, who the ECHO understands is Paul Armstrong from Maghull, running to safety while still holding onto his drink.

As for why Armstrong would still be holding on to his pint in the face of such terror? Many on Twitter have offered a pretty solid explanation.
