Fishmongers' Hall: Saskia Jones' uncle reads statement

Saskia Jones and Jack Merritt, the victims of the Fishmongers’ Hall attack, were killed unlawfully by a convicted terrorist after a string of failures by authorities, an inquest jury has concluded. Mr Merritt, 25, and Ms Jones, 25, were fatally stabbed by Usman Khan at a Learning Together offender education alumni event on November 29 2019. Reading a statement following the ruling, Ms Jones' uncle, Phil Jones, said the event organisers, 'Learning Together', which is a prisoner education programme, appeared to have "scant regard" for safety, while state agencies also shared responsibility.
