What the papers say – December 2
The London Bridge terror attack leads Monday’s papers.
Those who lost their lives in the London Bridge terror attack are on the country’s front pages.
The i pays tribute to the victims of the London Bridge terror attack, Saskia Jones and Jack Merritt, as those who “always saw the best in people”.
The victims were “killed for caring”, according to Metro.
The Times reports intelligence chiefs are “on alert for London Bridge copycats”, while The Daily Telegraph decries those terrorists who have been freed early only “to be sent back to jail”.
Ms Jones was “betrayed” and “failed by a cash-strapped, broken justice system”, according to the Daily Mirror, while The Sun describes her as an angel “stolen by pure evil”.
Meanwhile, The Guardian says Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been “accused of exploiting” those who died in the attack.

The Daily Mail reports authorities are engaged in a “new blitz on freed jihadis” following the attack, with the Daily Express saying the Government has begun a “crackdown on extremists”.
And The Independent says it is austerity that must bear the blame for the risks posed by freed terrorists.
The Financial Times, meanwhile, says hedge fund TCI’s chief executive has called for the punishment of directors of firms which fail to disclose carbon dioxide emissions.
And the Daily Star says Britain is looking at more than a month of extremely cold temperatures which will “bring travel chaos”.
