British victim of Stockholm truck attack named

The British victim of the truck attack in Stockholm last week has been named as Chris Bevington.

The 41-year-old died along with two Swedes and a Belgian national when a lorry was driven into pedestrians in the Drottninggatan area of central Stockholm.

Bevington was based in Stockholm, where he worked for music streaming website Spotify.

The family, which has asked for privacy, is being supported by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office, which has updated its travel advice.

The FCO asks British travellers to Sweden to remain vigilant.

But police have removed a cordon from the area around the scene of the attack and the area is now accessible again.

British tourists had been warned to avoid the area following Friday’s attack.

A 39-year-old Uzbek man has been arrested in connection with the attack. Swedish police revealed over the weekend that they had been searching for him since February. Having previously applied for residency, the suspected attacker was faced deportation from Sweden and authorities said there was a reasonable suspicion he had been plotting “terrorist homicide”.
