London's Muslims raise £18,000 in one day for victims of terror attack

A Muslim group raised £18,000 in one day in support of the victims of Wednesday's London terror attacks and their families.

Muslims United for London co-ordinated a crowdfunding campaign which saw the amount of money skyrocket in the first hour.

The funds will be used to support victims and victims’ families of the terror attack in which four people were killed and 40 injured.

The project, Muslims Unite for London, was set-up by Muddassar Ahmed who was in Parliament when the attack happened and captured footage of the scene on his phone. Muddassar along with others spent nearly five hours in the building as authorities secured the area.

The crowdfunding page says: "Thank you for supporting the victims and the families of victims of this tragic attack. 

"100% of funds collected through this campaign will go to the victims and the families of the victims most affected by the tragic events that unfolded on March 22, 2017, in our community."

The Telegraph asked organiser Muddassar Ahmed how funds would be distributed to victims and families.

He said: "Most likely through the police roll of honour trust but we are exploring several options".
