Noon: Kevin Hurley, the former head of the Head of the Counter Terrorism police unit, has warned about the possibility of more attacks.
Speaking to Sky News, Mr Hurley said: “What we’re seeing now is a perfect storm of a number of factors.
“First the fact that no one is dealing with who is funding with this radicalisation process, whether its paying for extremist Mosques and extremist Imams who preach this doctrine.
“We are not getting head of the curve in terms f dealing with the internet, and finally, most crucially locally, the police have now been cutting significant numbers.
11.50am: A major police operation is underway in Barking, in the London borough of Barking and Dagenham.
Police officers have cordoned off a block of flats in an operation that is believed to have begun around 7am.
Reports suggest several suspects were tackled by the police. The number of arrest has not been confirmed yet.
11.25am: Election campaigning will resume tomorrow and the election will go ahead a planned, Theresa May has confirmed.
She said: Our society should continue to function in accordance to out values, but when it comes to taking on extremism and terrorism, things need to change.
“As a mark of respect, the two political parties have suspended our campaigns for today. but violence an never be allowed to disrupt democratic process.
“So those campaigns will resume in full tomorrow, and the general election will go ahead as planned on Thursday.”
10.45am: Theresa May has vowed to review Britain's counter-terrorism stategy in the face of a “more complex, more fragmented and more hidden” terror threat.
Mrs May has also revealed that five terror plots have bees stopped since the Westminster attack in March.
London Bridge is currently closed to traffic
10.40am: Theresa May said: “Last night our country fell victim to a brutal terrorist attack once again. As a result I have just chaired a meeting of the Governments emergency committee, and I want to update your its the latest information about the attack.
“Shortly before 10 past 10 yesterday evening, the Metropolitan Police received reports that a white van had stuck pedestrians on London Bridge.
“It continued to drive from London bridge to Borough market where three terrorists left the van and attacked innocent and unarmed civilians with blades and knives.
“All three were wearing what appeared to be explosive vests but the police have established that this clothing was fake, and worn only to spread panic and fear.
“As so often in such serious situations,the police responded with great courage and great speed.
“Armed officers from the Metropolitan police and the City of London Police arrived at Borough Market within moments and shot and killed the three suspects.
“The terrorists were confronted and shot by armed officers within eight minutes of the police receiving the first emergency call.
“Seven people have died as a result of the attack, in addition to the three suspects shot dead but the police. Forty-eight people are being teated in several hospitals across London. Many have life-threatening injuries.
“On behalf of the people of London and on behalf of the whole country, I want to thank and pay tribute to the professionalism and bravery of the police sand emergency services and the courage of members of the public who defended themselves and others from the attackers.
“And out thoughts and prayers are with the victims and with their friends and families and loved ones.
“This is as we all know, the third terrorist attack this nation has experienced in the past three months. In March a similar attack took place just round the corner on Westminster Bridge. Two weeks ago the Manchester Arena was attacked by a suicide bomber, and now London has been struck once more.
“And at the same time the security intelligence services and police have disrupted five credible plots since the Westminster attack in March. In terms of their planning and execution the recent attacks are not connected but we believe we are experiencing a new trend in the threat we face, as terrorism breeds terrorism, and perpetrators are inspired to attack not only on the basis of carefully constructed plots after years of planning and training, and not even as lone attackers radicalised online, but by copying one another and often using the crudest means of attack."
“We cannot and must not pretend that things can continue as they are. Things need to change and they need to change in four important ways.
“First; while the recent attacks are not connected by common networks, they are connected by one important sense. They are bound together by the single evil ideology of Islamist extremism, that preaches hatred, sows division and promotes sectarianism.
It is an ideology that claims our Western values of freedom, democracy and human rights are incompatible with the religion of Islam. It is an ideology that is a perversion of Islam, and perversion of the truth.
