But Ukip broke with the other parties by refusing to suspend its General Election campaign, with leader Paul Nuttall warning that stalling the democratic process could lead to more attacks. "It is time to say enough is enough". "I threw something at them, maybe like a stool, a chair", he said. None of the dead were identified by name.

From The Associated Press: France's minister for Europe says that four French citizens are among the dozens of wounded.

He was then targeted by one of the three attackers, who were later shot dead by police, a BTP spokeswoman told the paper.

"Although he is seriously unwell, he was able to recount how he faced the attackers armed only with his baton, outside London Bridge station", Crowther said in a statement.

A member of the public received non-critical gunshot wounds during the incident, he said.

Rowley said the investigation is progressing at pace and officers from the Met's Counter Terrorism Command, the National Counter Terrorism Policing network are working relentlessly with United Kingdom intelligence partners to piece together exactly what had occurred the place.

A vigil for the victims will take place at nearby Tower Bridge on Monday evening.

Witnesses reported a vehicle hitting pedestrians and seeing injured people on the ground on the bridge.

May said the series of attacks were not connected in terms of planning and execution. She said five credible plots have been disrupted since March. After that attack, Britain's official threat level from terrorism was raised to "critical", meaning an attack may be imminent.

Numerous heroes emerged in the hours after the attacks. There's a patient in this hospital who's been shot in the head; a man. "I was just throwing it at them, trying to get them to chase me so I could get them out into the main road where the police could see them and obviously take them down".

The Government's emergency Cobra committee gathered on Sunday afternoon, for the second time that day, to discuss the attack. I've said hello in passing more than 50, 60 occasions. "While we have made significant progress in recent years, there is - to be frank - far too much tolerance of extremism in our country", she said, urging Britons to be more robust in stamping it out in the public sector and in wider society.

"We believe three people were involved, but we still have got some more inquiries to do to be 100 percent confident in that", he said.

Borough Market, at the south end of the bridge, is a world-famous food hall and a trendy nightlife area always packed with revellers on a Saturday night. At several points outside the cordon, people laid flowers and messages of grief and solidarity. My prayers are with the victims & their families, first responders & the British people. That number has been increased to seven and could go higher.

At 4 a.m., police said six people were killed.

Trump later launched an attack on London Mayor Sadiq Khan, criticising him for - as Trump claimed - telling Londoners to remain calm as there was "no reason to be alarmed".

"I'm reassured that we are one of the safest global cities in the world, if not the safest global city in the world, but we always evolve and review ways to make sure we're as safe as we possibly can".
