Londoners headed back to work on Monday for the first time since a weekend terror attack left seven people dead. There may be a lingering sense of shock in the capital, but Britons are refusing to give in to fear and despondency.

It’s nearly business as usual in London. Roads and tube stations around London Bridge reopened on Monday morning as commuters made their way back to work after a Saturday night terror attack killed seven and injured at least 48 others, some of them seriously.

“People were a little bit quiet, but it tends to be quiet in the morning anyway," said one commuter. "It was really no different; it was surprisingly normal."
