A man who watched on as terrorists slit the throat of Brisbane woman Candice Hedge during the weekend's London terror attack, has described the horrific event.

Speaking with Channel 9 journalists in London, witness Marco said she was hiding under a table before one of the attackers pounced on her.

"She was under the table and she slightly moved or maybe they pushed her and the moment she moved her head that's when they cut her throat," he said.

"The girl was bleeding massively but she was conscious, there was a lot of blood. It was clear to the neck which was scary."

Hedge was dining with her boyfriend in a Borough Markets pub when the attack happened. Her partner had snuck off to assist some of the injured people when Hedge was attacked, he only realised she was injured once he rushed back to her side.

The 31-year-old has since undergone emergency surgery and is recovering, she posted on Facebook to worried family and friends back in Australia saying "Bit sore but i'll survive."

Hedge was one of three Australians, including Darwin man Andrew Morrison, known to have been caught up in the deadly rampage. Seven people were killed and 48 were wounded, with Canadian bride-to-be
Christine Archibald named as the first victim.
