Two more arrests over London Bridge attack


But the three men failed to provide payment details and the vehicle was not picked up, prompting them to use a smaller van from a DIY store instead.

She officially started the job less than three weeks after Khalid Masood drove a vehicle into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, and then stabbed a policeman to death in the grounds of parliament. Five more victims died from stabbing wounds, and 48 others were injured in the attack.

Officers are particularly keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the white van targeting individuals on London Bridge, saw the suspects attacking members of the public or armed police engaging the suspects.

Mr Haydon said: "When I come back to Butt trying to get hold of a 7.5 tonne lorry - the effect could have been even worse". Both were held on suspicion of terror offences in raids on separate addresses in east London.

Additionally, detectives found a Koran opened to a page about martyrdom in the attackers' safe house, and a stockpile of weapons in the van.

Since then a crowded Manchester concert featuring the pop singer Ariana Grande was hit by a bomber and three knife-wielding men in a rented van attacked civilians in and around London Bridge.

The men were also wearing hoax suicide belts consisting of plastic water bottles wrapped in grey duct tape.

Forensic work at this flat has determined that they acted alone. He hired the van used in the attack from a B&Q store in Romford on the morning of the attack.

Six minutes later it returned, crossing over the bridge again and making a U-turn at the northern end, the report said.

Police have made a number of global inquiries as they work urgently to establish how the three attackers knew each other, as well as investigating whether they were helped through funding or any other means.

The men jumped out clutching the ceramic kitchen knives. They are ceramic, rather than metal.

They stabbed five people who had been enjoying the area's pubs and restaurants.

Inside the van, gravel, chairs and a red suitcase can be seen, which detectives believe were props for a cover story the terrorists used to justify the rental to their families.

While the attacker was reportedly not considered a subject of interest to British police or M15, it was reported that Italian authorities had warned British security services about Zaghba, advising of his ISIS connections.

A huge investigation was launched in the wake of the attack, with 18 people arrested so far.

Inside, they found 13 apparent Molotov cocktails made from wine bottles and a possible flammable liquid.

The man has been taken into police custody.

London will not be cowed by militants who have killed 35 people in three separate attacks on the United Kingdom but police will ask for more resources to tackle the threat from marauding assailants, London police chief Cressida Dick told Reuters.

Butt had been on bail after being arrested for fraud in a case in October, police said. He had been opening accounts and closing them again, possibly to launder money.

"There was no evidence uncovered of any attack planning in relation to him", Haydon said. They decided it was "deeply abhorrent" but not evidence of criminality.
