Seven people were killed in the attack and dozens more were injured. On Sunday, 21 remained in critical condition.

Rowley says police are confident that the three men fatally shot by officers in the minutes after the assault were the only attackers, but there is “clearly more to do” in the investigation.

Police say the white van the attackers used to mow down pedestrians on London Bridge was rented by one of them.

Security cordons placed around London Bridge will remain indefinitely.
