ANOTHER VICTIM OF the London terror attack has been named.

Alexandre Pigeard, a 26-year-old French national, was living and working in the city.

He was one of eight people killed during the attack last Saturday.

One of the killers fatally stabbed him while he was working on the terrace of a restaurant at Borough Market where he had been an employee for nine months.

A statement released on behalf of his family via the Metropolitan Police said:

Alexandre was a marvellous son, a perfect older brother and a radiant young man much-loved by all who had the good fortune to meet him. All his friends praised his kindness, his good humour and his generosity.

“Alexandre was passionate about electronic music and a member of Club 808, a group of DJs based in Caen (Calvados, France).”

The family asked for privacy as they deal with “this tragically cruel and unjust loss”.

The others victims have been named in the days since the attack, they are Spaniard Ignacio Echeverria, French nationals Sebastien Belanger and Xavier Thomas, Australians Sara Zelenak and Kirsty Boden, Canadian Christine Archibald and Londoner James McMullan.
