‘Lion of London Bridge’ found with half a pound of drugs in police raid on his caravan
Roy Larner became famous when he confronted knife-wielding ISIS terrorists around London’s Borough Market shouting “f**k you, I’m Millwall”
The so-called ‘Lion of London Bridge’ has landed himself in trouble after his caravan was raided by police – unearthing half a pound of drugs.
Roy Larner was one of 48 people injured in terror attacks around Borough Market in June last year, where eight people died.
The 48-year-old bravely confronted knife-wielding attackers, shouting “f**k you, I’m Millwall”, before being hacked with machetes.
Just over a year later – Larner’s caravan was raided by police in Greatstone, Kent – who discovered a haul of amphetamines, weighing 240g.
He pleaded guilty to possessing the drug at Canterbury Crown Court, but denied intending to sell the Class B drug to others.
Larner was released from hospital after 12 days with more than 80 stitches to his head, ear, arms and hands.
His heroism prompted members of the public to donate £50,000 to get the south Londoner back on his feet.
He gained his fame after shouting ‘f*** you, I’m Millwall’ during the 2017 attack as he grappled with Islamic terrorists.
A petition was even set up online to award him the St George’s Cross – with fans praising him around the world.
He will face a one-day trial in February next year and was granted bail until the next hearing.
Some of his other convictions can be found here along with a reference to his support of the National Front.
