The London Bridge heroes who tackled a terrorist during his stabbing spree in a Nov. 29 incident will be honored, it was learned Thursday.

Usman Khan killed two people before police shot him dead.

In between, however, a group of onlookers courageously tackled then contained the man in order for police to act.

Darryn Frost, 38, a government worker who seized a narwhal tusk to hit Khan, along with prison parolee John Crilly, 48, could be among the honorees according to The Sun newspaper.

Stevie Hurst, 34, was also among the group of heroes and could be honored, according to reports.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman called the group of brave people the “very best of the British people” and they’re expected to receive either the George Cross or the Queen’s Gallantry Medal sometime in the new year.

“The Prime Minister and the country have huge admiration for the courage they showed,” the spokesman told The Sun.
