"You will never succeed in dividing our city".

:00:15.:00:19.

That was Mayor Sadiq Khan's message to extremists at a vigil

:00:20.:00:22.

at City Hall this evening to remember the victims

:00:23.:00:24.

Thousands of people from all walks of life came together and stood

:00:25.:00:29.

united as a minute's silence was held not far

:00:30.:00:31.

Londoners joining together, defiant, determined

:00:32.:00:44.

We're in central London, probably a road and a half away

:00:45.:00:51.

from where the actual attacks took place.

:00:52.:00:53.

We're standing here, we're standing strong with thousands

:00:54.:00:56.

of people with their children here, old and young are here.

:00:57.:00:58.

I'm so proud to see all different colours, all different faiths,

:00:59.:01:02.

all different races coming together in unity, which is exactly

:01:03.:01:05.

what the terrorists didn't want to achieve.

:01:06.:01:13.

London stands in defiance against this cowardly attack

:01:14.:01:18.

on our city, our people, our values and our way of life.

:01:19.:01:25.

Security was tight - a stark reminder of the threat

:01:26.:01:37.

Remembering the lives lost and others that have

:01:38.:01:48.

The realisation it could have been any of us.

:01:49.:01:57.

I just felt London Bridge is somewhere I commute in and out

:01:58.:02:00.

of on a daily basis and I walk across the bridge every

:02:01.:02:03.

day to go to work, I socialise in Borough Market.

:02:04.:02:07.

It's violating to feel that this has happened right on your doorstep.

:02:08.:02:11.

Some have questioned whether vigils like this are so helpful.

:02:12.:02:15.

What use they are against such hatred.

:02:16.:02:18.

But many who gathered at City Hall today insisted they had to be here.

:02:19.:02:22.

I would disagree with anyone that says it's not appropriate.

:02:23.:02:29.

I think it brings people together, it's a way to express your feelings

:02:30.:02:32.

I think it's important that we show it's all types

:02:33.:02:37.

I'm not actually from London, but I just wanted

:02:38.:02:40.

The crowds continued to come, spilling down to the river.

:02:41.:02:47.

Londoners still struggling to make sense of the violence,

:02:48.:02:49.

The Metropolitan Police Commissioner said today the authorities are now

:02:50.:03:01.

confronting a "new reality" with three terror attacks

:03:02.:03:03.

Saturday night was also the first time Scotland Yard issued a warning

:03:04.:03:09.

during an attack asking people to "run, hide and tell"

:03:10.:03:12.

Our home affairs correspondent, Nick Beake, looks at what more

:03:13.:03:17.

could be done to help keep our city safe.

:03:18.:03:22.

The moment Londoners had been told to prepare for became

:03:23.:03:24.

Knifemen were on the loose, rampaging through Borough Market.

:03:25.:03:33.

That's why, at 11:46pm, for the first time ever,

:03:34.:03:35.

the Metropolitan Police tweeted this instruction, run, hide, tell.

:03:36.:03:42.

The best option is to evacuate but only do so if it won't put

:03:43.:03:46.

For the past 18 months we have been urged to know what to do

:03:47.:03:52.

The officer in charge of policing Borough Market praised the public's

:03:53.:03:56.

We don't put these things out unless we really need

:03:57.:04:00.

to but the community know what to do, they reacted

:04:01.:04:02.

People did as they were asked and other people acted heroically

:04:03.:04:08.

and got in there and helped other people and protected one another

:04:09.:04:11.

and helped officers and I can't speak highly enough.

:04:12.:04:17.

They were absolutely outstanding on the day.

:04:18.:04:19.

But the man who last year reviewed how well London was prepared

:04:20.:04:22.

for a terror attack is urging Londoners to do more

:04:23.:04:25.

It needs to be part of everyday life, that you automatically know

:04:26.:04:30.

that in the event of an incident like that, you run away from danger.

:04:31.:04:34.

If you can't run because you are boxed in or whatever else,

:04:35.:04:37.

then you hide as well as you can and as soon as you're safe,

:04:38.:04:40.

make contact with the police to let them know that

:04:41.:04:43.

you are there and that however many other people are there with you.

:04:44.:04:47.

This morning the police brought temporary barriers

:04:48.:04:49.

On Saturday night, once again, pedestrians were run over

:04:50.:04:59.

You will see from Whitehall that there are permanent solutions

:05:00.:05:03.

put in place after 7/7 and that is what we are

:05:04.:05:06.

It looks like more barriers in busy parts of London

:05:07.:05:11.

But this is a specific response to a specific threat,

:05:12.:05:15.

people trying to use a vehicle to target pedestrians.

:05:16.:05:19.

On Saturday night, the attackers also had knives.

:05:20.:05:28.

In Manchester it was an explosive device.

:05:29.:05:30.

The terror threat we face is evolving.

:05:31.:05:32.

I think what is happening is unprecedented.

:05:33.:05:34.

There is very strange ways that people are going about what's

:05:35.:05:38.

happening and we are faced with scenarios that we have never

:05:39.:05:41.

seen before so it is hard as police to plan for this sort of thing.

:05:42.:05:44.

No-one quite knows how the city will look and feel

:05:45.:05:48.

in the coming months and years, as it confronts a different

:05:49.:05:51.

While there have been heart-breaking accounts of how the horrific events

:05:52.:06:02.

on Saturday unfolded, we've also heard heart-warming

:06:03.:06:03.

Ordinary people showing remarkable courage and compassion.

:06:04.:06:11.

Our correspondent Karl Mercer has been speaking to some of the medical

:06:12.:06:14.

staff who rushed to help those injured.

:06:15.:06:17.

London's NHS was tested once again on Saturday night.

:06:18.:06:23.

From the front line paramedics who treated people around

:06:24.:06:25.

Borough Market, to the specialist trauma teams who cared

:06:26.:06:27.

People like Malik Ramadhan, a doctor at the Royal London in Whitechapel,

:06:28.:06:33.

cycling home when he saw dozens of police cars shoot past him.

:06:34.:06:37.

He turned round and went back to work just as the first

:06:38.:06:40.

I think what was perhaps different was if we take 12 casualties

:06:41.:06:47.

normally there will be a range of injuries and severity but all 12

:06:48.:06:51.

of the people we received were very severely injured.

:06:52.:06:55.

The thing that was perhaps different was the clear lethality.

:06:56.:06:58.

The stab wounds were designed to kill people.

:06:59.:07:02.

There were no little slices, there were no flesh wounds,

:07:03.:07:05.

they were all very deep, penetrating injuries

:07:06.:07:07.

And they all needed an operation, they all needed something to repair

:07:08.:07:17.

London's Ambulance Service sent 80 medics to the scene,

:07:18.:07:23.

eventually taking 48 patients to hospitals across the capital.

:07:24.:07:27.

There were lots and lots of patients and quite confusing information

:07:28.:07:32.

Lots of members of the police and the public did some quite heroic

:07:33.:07:37.

things to try and save the lives of people who had been

:07:38.:07:40.

14 patients remain at Kings College Hospital,

:07:41.:07:45.

The predominant injuries we're treating are stab

:07:46.:07:49.

wounds to the head, neck, torso and abdomen.

:07:50.:07:52.

We have also got a number of patients who suffered blunt force

:07:53.:07:55.

trauma as well from probably being hit by a vehicle.

:07:56.:08:01.

And how do you deal with the relatives when they come in?

:08:02.:08:06.

That's something that's been more difficult than normal,

:08:07.:08:11.

a huge range of nationalities and couples and I think that's

:08:12.:08:16.

something that's been quite different for us,

:08:17.:08:21.

a series of couples walking along the bridge had been knocked down.

:08:22.:08:26.

Some people have pushed their loved one out of the way of the van

:08:27.:08:30.

who are now injured and so we've had to cope with the feelings

:08:31.:08:34.

of people who aren't injured but were also part of the events.

:08:35.:08:38.

As well as looking after the person who is injured from the event.

:08:39.:08:45.

Unfortunately I've dealt with a number of incidents like this

:08:46.:08:48.

before so while I wouldn't say it's become a normality, I have a way

:08:49.:08:52.

of coping with it and I'll sit back and reflect on what went one

:08:53.:08:55.

and reflect on the excellent care that the team here has delivered.

:08:56.:09:00.

I look round and I can see a bunch of world-class people saving lives

:09:01.:09:03.

To think I was temporarily leading the team is incredibly humbling.

:09:04.:09:17.

I'll leave you with Elizabeth for a check on the weather.

:09:18.:09:27.

Hopefully it's drier. Not exactly, it will be quite

:09:28.:09:34.

unsettled for the rest of the week. A soggy end to the day and there

:09:35.:09:38.

will be more rain tonight. The general theme for the week is wet

:09:39.:09:43.

and windy at times, feeling more like October than June for much of

:09:44.:09:47.

the week. Particularly windy tomorrow with strong gusts of wind,

:09:48.:09:53.

but also some sunshine and drier weather. Wednesday and Thursday are

:09:54.:09:57.

looking like the dry days. Overnight, the rain will clear

:09:58.:10:00.

towards the north-east, gradually turning lighter and more patchy into

:10:01.:10:07.

tomorrow morning. Still some rain to clear through the morning rush hour

:10:08.:10:11.

tomorrow so expect further outbreaks of rain, most liked and patchy. The

:10:12.:10:17.

wind will pick up in the afternoon, up to 40 mph, perhaps enough to take

:10:18.:10:27.

down some branches in places. It will feel quite cool where we get

:10:28.:10:31.

blustery showers. Wednesday is looking drier. Some good spells of

:10:32.:10:36.

sunshine. It will still be quite breezy. On Thursday, the rain is

:10:37.:10:41.

back and that will sweep in from the West. We are likely to see rain for

:10:42.:10:45.

the second half of the day on Thursday. Friday is looking like our

:10:46.:10:50.

second dry day. Quite a bit of cloud, but spells of sunshine and

:10:51.:10:54.

temperatures will be creeping up. As we look ahead to the weekend, more

:10:55.:11:01.

rain, particularly on Saturday. Sunday is a big improvement and

:11:02.:11:03.

rain, particularly on Saturday. Sunday is a big improvement and it

:11:04.:11:04.

will feel the touch warmer. Good evening. It wasn't flaming June

:11:05.:11:15.

today with all of that rain and wind. Really gusty winds and it will

:11:16.:11:22.

get windier. Of us tomorrow. Lots of grey skies across the UK. By the

:11:23.:11:30.

time we get to Wednesday, the weather is going to briefly improve.

:11:31.:11:32.
