    The UK’s most senior counter-terrorism officer has apologised to the families of those killed in the Fishmongers’ Hall attack in the wake of a damning inquest that found that the victims were killed unlawfully by a convicted terrorist after a string of failures by authorities.

    Saskia Jones, 25, and Jack Merritt, 25, Merritt were fatally stabbed by Usman Khan at a Learning Together offender education alumni event on November 29 2019.

    The jury criticised agencies involved in the management of Khan, saying there was “unacceptable management, a lack of accountability and deficiencies in management by Mappa (multi-agency public protection arrangements)”.

    The family of Ms Jones launched a blistering attack on event organisers, accusing them of “scant regard” for safety.

    Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said he is “deeply sorry” for the omissions and failures that meant opportunities to stop convicted terrorist Usman Khan were missed.
