Kirsty Boden ran to help others during the attack on London Bridge and nearby Borough Market in June. Her courage led her to be hailed as the angel of London Bridge.

Ms Boden, who was from southern Australia, worked as a senior staff nurse in theatres recovery at Guy’s Hospital in London.

The Sunday Times reports how, after Ms Boden's death, her boyfriend James Hodder found a copy of travelogue about their last holiday together on her latop.

Mr Hodder then contacted the newspaper about the article, which recounts a trip to the Hungarian capital Budapest, to see if it would be considered for publication.

Travel editor Stephen Bleach said her writing showed 'real promise'.

'One in a million'

Among the tributes to Ms Boden's in the days after her death was one from Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust chief nurse Dame Eileen Sills.

She said: 'Kirsty was an outstanding nurse and a hugely valued member of the staff team in theatres recovery, described by her colleagues as "one in a million" who always went the extra mile  for the patients in her care.'
