The 32-year-old from Hackney, east London, was identified by a bank card found on his body, according to his sister. "Another bang went off and he was on the floor".

Her family said in a statement: "She had room in her heart for everyone and believed strongly that every person was to be valued and respected". A police spokesman said "a number" of people had been detained.

Then two people approached another person and "began to stick the knife in. and then I froze and I didn't know what to do".

The three men wearing fake suicide bomb vests men were shot dead by eight officers outside a pub after police opened fire with an "unprecedented" hail of 50 bullets, while a bystander was also shot.

The London attack, carried out by three knife-wielding men in a rented van, is apparently unconnected to the Manchester bombing. As well as carrying knives, the attackers wore fake suicide vests, created to spread more fear. Rowley said Monday that investigators were working to confirm his identity.

Commissioner Cressida Dick said she was "enormously proud" of the unarmed officer who stepped in to help uniformed colleagues and members of the public. Eighteen of the injured remain in critical condition.

The dead include a Canadian woman and a French man, while the injured came from a variety of countries including Australia, Bulgaria, Germany and New Zealand. "He's one of our neighbours. He was a very nice guy".

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has confirmed four Australians were caught up in the London terror attacks.

A witness said at least six people were hit on the bridge.

He was last seen lying on the ground and has not been heard from since.

"If we become aware of an emergency involving imminent harm to someone's safety, we notify law enforcement", said Milner on Sunday.

Medics treated the wounded near the market as shocked people cried and shouted around them.

Amid the violence and fear were stories of compassion and heroism.

Witnesses described how passers-by threw chairs and beer glasses at the attackers in an attempt to stop them. Another man, also reported to be an attacker, was pictured on the ground a short distance away. Then he picked up a chair. "I ran thinking she would be running with me but I looked back and she wasn't there". "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".
