The beautiful idea was arranged by British Muslims who wanted to do something to help after eight people died in a terror attack last weekend.

Each rose carried ‘messages of love to the world’, the organisers said.

People donated £600 to pay for the flowers, given out to anyone who found themselves at the same spot which was the scene of tragedy seven days ago.

‘We won’t let London Bridge fall down nor any bridge upon which the communities of this great city and nation are built,’ those handing out the flowers said.

After the photos were shared on Facebook, one woman commented: ‘Building bridges not walls. Your love will be appreciated today.’

It comes after a vigil near London Bridge drew hundreds last week.

To huge applause, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan told those gathered: ‘As a proud and patriotic British Muslim I say this you do not commit these disgusting acts in my name.

‘Your perverse ideology has nothing to do with the true values of Islam. You will never succeed in dividing our city.’
