The second victim of the London Bridge terror attack has been named as another young Cambridge University graduate.

Saskia Jones, 23, of Stratford-upon-Avon, died alongside Jack Merritt, 25, of Cottenham, Cambridgeshire, after Usman Khan, 28, went on a deadly knife frenzy in London on Friday. 

Both graduates were taking part in a prisoner rehabilitation conference that was trying to rehabilitate the likes of the terrorist who went on to kill them. Miss Jones was working as a volunteer and Mr Merritt as a coordinator.   

The 23-year-old's family paid tribute to her 'funny, kind, positive influence', saying she was 'intent on living life to the full'.

Khan was on licence and wearing an electronic monitoring tag when he attended the conference organised by Cambridge University scheme Learning Together at Fishmongers' Hall near London Bridge.   

He was shot dead by police after members of the public bravely rushed to disarm him, one with a narwhal tusk taken from the venue. 

The attack left three other people injured, one of whom was a member of staff, the university's vice-chancellor Stephen Toope has said. 

Today one of the people injured in the horrific attack was allowed to return home today, while two others remain in hospital. 

Miss Jones's family's heart-breaking statement read: 'Saskia was a funny, kind, positive influence at the centre of many people's lives. 

'She had a wonderful sense of mischievous fun and was generous to the point of always wanting to see the best in all people.

'She was intent on living life to the full and had a wonderful thirst for knowledge, enabling her to be the best she could be.
