A PORTER who fended off London Bridge killer Usman Khan with a ceremonial pike was awarded a prize for bravery.
Lukasz Koczocik, 41, took on the terrorist after he stabbed a man and woman in the fishmonger’s hall in 2019.
He snatched the pike off the wall and confronted 28-year-old Khan, who struck the top beam, seriously injuring him.
Despite his injuries, Lukasz kept fighting until others joined – forcing Khan onto the bridge in central London, where he was shot dead by cops.
His exploits earned him the Royal Humane Society’s Stanhope Gold Medal – their highest award.
Announcing the award, Society Secretary Andrew Chapman said: “Lukasz was a true hero.
“Very few people would have the courage to do what he did.
“He was badly injured by the attacker but refused to surrender and almost certainly other lives were saved as a result.”
