Folajimi Olubunmi-Adewole, a resident of Southwark, lived in Bermondsey. He supported a number of local charities and was committed to helping others.
On 24 April 2021 he selflessly and bravely jumped from this place into the River Thames to rescue a woman who had fallen from London Bridge.
Tragically he did not survive whilst attempting to save another. May his selfless courage, kindness and positivity be an inspiration to us all.

There are 4 memorials in this photo:
- The London Bridge information/viewing panel is on top of the river wall, just to the right of the person with the red hat.
- The plaque to Folajimi Olubumni-Adewole is on the face of the river wall, largely hidden by the group of three women at the far right.
- The remnant from the bridge is laid in the pavement, about where the two people are standing.
- The London Bridge 2017 attack panel is on top of the river wall, between the person with the white bag and the person in the white shirt.
The information panel was originally set at the centre but it was moved to the left to allow the 2017 attack panel to take the central position.
