Two of the men who carried out Saturday night’s terror attack in London have been named by police.
Scotland Yard said Pakistan-born Khuram Butt, 27, from Barking, east London was known to police and MI5 but there was no intelligence to suggest an attack.
The other attacker was Rachid Redouane, 30, from Barking, who police said claimed to be Moroccan-Libyan.
The pair and one other man were shot dead by police after killing seven people and injuring 48.
They drove a hired van into pedestrians on London Bridge before stabbing people in the area around Borough Market.
A vigil was held at Potters Field Park near London Bridge earlier to remember the victims.
NHS England said 36 people remained in hospital, with 18 in a critical condition.
