‘Steve Gallant’s exceptional act of courage on London Bridge speaks of both heroism and redemption’ – Jon Snow, former anchor of Channel 4 News

This is a story of physical bravery, moral courage, and the power of redemption from the man who led the charge in stopping the terrorist attack at Fishmongers’ Hall in November 2019.

From cell fires to violent feuds and gang battles on prison wings, after being sentenced to life imprisonment for murder, what Steve witnessed at HMP Frankland made him change his life forever. After losing everything, he vowed to never use violence again.

In November 2019, Steve’s redemptive journey led him to a Learning Together event at Fishmongers’ Hall, hosted by his mentor, Jack Merritt, and attended by Saskia Jones. It was here, on his first day out of prison on day release, that Steve was forced to break his vow as he bravely confronted and fought armed-terrorist Usman Khan on London Bridge. Armed just with a narwhal tusk, Steve wrestled and held Khan to the ground while he waited for the police to arrive.

In October 2020 Steve was granted a royal prerogative of mercy in recognition of his actions at London Bridge. In August 2021 he was released from prison and in March 2023 he was awarded a Queen’s Gallantry Medal, the final civilian gallantry awards approved by the late Queen.

This is Steve Gallant’s powerful and inspiring story of redemption told in full for the first time.
