"You will never succeed in dividing our city".
That was Mayor Sadiq Khan's message to extremists at a vigil
at City Hall this evening to remember the victims
Thousands of people from all walks of life came together and stood
united as a minute's silence was held not far
Londoners joining together, defiant, determined
We're in central London, probably a road and a half away
from where the actual attacks took place.
We're standing here, we're standing strong with thousands
of people with their children here, old and young are here.
I'm so proud to see all different colours, all different faiths,
all different races coming together in unity, which is exactly
what the terrorists didn't want to achieve.
London stands in defiance against this cowardly attack
on our city, our people, our values and our way of life.
Security was tight - a stark reminder of the threat
Remembering the lives lost and others that have
The realisation it could have been any of us.
I just felt London Bridge is somewhere I commute in and out
of on a daily basis and I walk across the bridge every
day to go to work, I socialise in Borough Market.
It's violating to feel that this has happened right on your doorstep.
Some have questioned whether vigils like this are so helpful.
What use they are against such hatred.
But many who gathered at City Hall today insisted they had to be here.
I would disagree with anyone that says it's not appropriate.
I think it brings people together, it's a way to express your feelings
I think it's important that we show it's all types
I'm not actually from London, but I just wanted
The crowds continued to come, spilling down to the river.
Londoners still struggling to make sense of the violence,
The Metropolitan Police Commissioner said today the authorities are now
confronting a "new reality" with three terror attacks
Saturday night was also the first time Scotland Yard issued a warning
during an attack asking people to "run, hide and tell"
Our home affairs correspondent, Nick Beake, looks at what more
could be done to help keep our city safe.
The moment Londoners had been told to prepare for became
Knifemen were on the loose, rampaging through Borough Market.
That's why, at 11:46pm, for the first time ever,
the Metropolitan Police tweeted this instruction, run, hide, tell.
The best option is to evacuate but only do so if it won't put
For the past 18 months we have been urged to know what to do
The officer in charge of policing Borough Market praised the public's
We don't put these things out unless we really need
to but the community know what to do, they reacted
People did as they were asked and other people acted heroically
and got in there and helped other people and protected one another
and helped officers and I can't speak highly enough.
They were absolutely outstanding on the day.
But the man who last year reviewed how well London was prepared
for a terror attack is urging Londoners to do more
It needs to be part of everyday life, that you automatically know
that in the event of an incident like that, you run away from danger.
If you can't run because you are boxed in or whatever else,
then you hide as well as you can and as soon as you're safe,
make contact with the police to let them know that
you are there and that however many other people are there with you.
This morning the police brought temporary barriers
On Saturday night, once again, pedestrians were run over
You will see from Whitehall that there are permanent solutions
put in place after 7/7 and that is what we are
It looks like more barriers in busy parts of London
But this is a specific response to a specific threat,
people trying to use a vehicle to target pedestrians.
On Saturday night, the attackers also had knives.
In Manchester it was an explosive device.
The terror threat we face is evolving.
I think what is happening is unprecedented.
There is very strange ways that people are going about what's
happening and we are faced with scenarios that we have never
seen before so it is hard as police to plan for this sort of thing.
No-one quite knows how the city will look and feel
in the coming months and years, as it confronts a different
While there have been heart-breaking accounts of how the horrific events
on Saturday unfolded, we've also heard heart-warming
Ordinary people showing remarkable courage and compassion.
Our correspondent Karl Mercer has been speaking to some of the medical
staff who rushed to help those injured.
London's NHS was tested once again on Saturday night.
From the front line paramedics who treated people around
Borough Market, to the specialist trauma teams who cared
People like Malik Ramadhan, a doctor at the Royal London in Whitechapel,
cycling home when he saw dozens of police cars shoot past him.
He turned round and went back to work just as the first
I think what was perhaps different was if we take 12 casualties
normally there will be a range of injuries and severity but all 12
of the people we received were very severely injured.
The thing that was perhaps different was the clear lethality.
The stab wounds were designed to kill people.
There were no little slices, there were no flesh wounds,
they were all very deep, penetrating injuries
And they all needed an operation, they all needed something to repair
London's Ambulance Service sent 80 medics to the scene,
eventually taking 48 patients to hospitals across the capital.
There were lots and lots of patients and quite confusing information
Lots of members of the police and the public did some quite heroic
things to try and save the lives of people who had been
14 patients remain at Kings College Hospital,
The predominant injuries we're treating are stab
wounds to the head, neck, torso and abdomen.
We have also got a number of patients who suffered blunt force
trauma as well from probably being hit by a vehicle.
And how do you deal with the relatives when they come in?
That's something that's been more difficult than normal,
a huge range of nationalities and couples and I think that's
something that's been quite different for us,
a series of couples walking along the bridge had been knocked down.
Some people have pushed their loved one out of the way of the van
who are now injured and so we've had to cope with the feelings
of people who aren't injured but were also part of the events.
As well as looking after the person who is injured from the event.
Unfortunately I've dealt with a number of incidents like this
before so while I wouldn't say it's become a normality, I have a way
of coping with it and I'll sit back and reflect on what went one
and reflect on the excellent care that the team here has delivered.
I look round and I can see a bunch of world-class people saving lives
To think I was temporarily leading the team is incredibly humbling.
I'll leave you with Elizabeth for a check on the weather.
Hopefully it's drier. Not exactly, it will be quite
unsettled for the rest of the week. A soggy end to the day and there
will be more rain tonight. The general theme for the week is wet
and windy at times, feeling more like October than June for much of
the week. Particularly windy tomorrow with strong gusts of wind,
but also some sunshine and drier weather. Wednesday and Thursday are
looking like the dry days. Overnight, the rain will clear
towards the north-east, gradually turning lighter and more patchy into
tomorrow morning. Still some rain to clear through the morning rush hour
tomorrow so expect further outbreaks of rain, most liked and patchy. The
wind will pick up in the afternoon, up to 40 mph, perhaps enough to take
down some branches in places. It will feel quite cool where we get
blustery showers. Wednesday is looking drier. Some good spells of
sunshine. It will still be quite breezy. On Thursday, the rain is
back and that will sweep in from the West. We are likely to see rain for
the second half of the day on Thursday. Friday is looking like our
second dry day. Quite a bit of cloud, but spells of sunshine and
temperatures will be creeping up. As we look ahead to the weekend, more
rain, particularly on Saturday. Sunday is a big improvement and
rain, particularly on Saturday. Sunday is a big improvement and it
will feel the touch warmer. Good evening. It wasn't flaming June
today with all of that rain and wind. Really gusty winds and it will
get windier. Of us tomorrow. Lots of grey skies across the UK. By the
time we get to Wednesday, the weather is going to briefly improve.
