Seven people were killed in London Bridge and Borough Market attacks on Saturday night. Of the 48 injured, 21 are critically ill in hospital.

Three terrorist brought carnage to the streets of London, moving down pedestrians with a van on London Bridge before stabbing a police officer and revelleres around Borough Market with 12in blades.

The three attackers, who were wearing fake suicide bomb vests, were shot dead by eight officers in an "unprecedented" hail of bullets. A bystander was injured when accidentally hit by a stray bullet.

The attack, the third terrorist incident in the UK this year, took place just a week after 22 people were killed and scores injured in a suicide bombing just after an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena.
