Taxi driver Darren Kenny
Sam Baggley, 21, was one of the hundreds of people trying to flee the area when the taxi driver Darren Kenny offered him and others a lift to safety, even turning down a £60 fare.
Mr Baggley from Lincoln went on Facebook to appeal for help tracking the taxi driver down. He has since been named as black taxi driver Darren Kenny, from Maidstone, Kent.
He posted: "As chaotic as it all was, as you can imagine getting away from the scene was difficult," Mr Baggley said. "An amazing and kind man, called Darren (I didn't get his surname) from Maidstone, picked us up, and others, in his black cab, and took us and many others away from danger, giving up his night and safety helping others.
"It really goes to show that there are some genuine and kind people out there and that in these darkest times of terror and austerity, the nation, and all of its citizens and guests, can come together and get through this!"
Mr Baggley said that he was enjoying drinks with his girlfriend and her mother at the Market Porter in Borough Market when terrorists armed with knives began attacking people on the road outside. The graduate business and property consultant said: "The landlord came in and was hysterically talking on his phone and started locking the doors.
"When I looked outside the window I saw men with knives covered in blood right outside the pub."

He later heard the sound of five gunshots and then 10 more – after which armed police stormed the pub and told people to evacuate.
He said: "It was chaos.
"There was blood everywhere, and shoes, shirts and people's phones just lying in the street.
"We were just running for dear life."
