 Sky News London Terror attack.  Live is over

Police have named two of the three men behind the atrocity on London Bridge and Borough Market.  A third has been identified.

They are Khuram Shazad Butt and Rachid Redouane, both from Barking in East London.  The third person is Youssef Zaghba, a Moroccan-Italian man.

Butt and his two accomplices drove a hired van into pedestrians on London Bridge before stabbing people in the area around Borough Market.

All three men were shot dead by police within eight minutes of receiving a 999 call.

Butt featured in a Channel 4 documentary last year about Islamist extremists with links to the jailed preacher Anjem Choudary.

The married father-of-two worked for London Underground as a trainee customer services assistant for nearly six months last year.  He could be seen in the programme arguing with police officers in the street. Butt was displaying a flag used by so-called Islamic State in a London park.

Seven people were killed and 48 injured in the attack which began at 21:58 BST on Saturday night 3 June.

Our hearts go out to families and friends of those who suffered

    Bomb science; apparently harder to understand than rocket science. You bomb people, they get angry and bomb you back, you get angry an bomb them back round and round it goes. 🙁
