London Bridge attacker tried to rent larger truck to kill more people

"Where might the attackers have bought them from", said Hayden, in an appeal for more information. If you know anything about these particular types of knives, please let us know.

Dean Haydon, the Metropolitan police commander who is leading the counter-terrorism investigation, said the fake suicide belts made the courage of police and members of the public who confronted the terrorists even more remarkable.

It has emerged that the London Bridge attackers were looking to carry out a larger-scale assault, as they tried to rent a 7.5-ton truck on the morning of the attack. The intended truck was smaller but similar to the one used in the Nice attack previous year that killed 86 people and injured hundreds in the resort town in the south of France.

London will not be cowed by militants who have killed 35 people in three separate attacks on the United Kingdom but police will ask for more resources to tackle the threat from marauding assailants, London police chief Cressida Dick told Reuters.

Dick said it was common for Islamic State to make claims about attacks that it had not been directly involved in.

Since then a crowded Manchester concert featuring the pop singer Ariana Grande was hit by a bomber and three knife-wielding men in a rented van attacked civilians in and around London Bridge. Police say homemade petrol bombs were found in the back.

Haydon said it remained a fast-moving investigation, but said police now had a clearer understanding of the movements of the terrorists on the day in question.

Investigators believe three victims were killed on the bridge, including one man who was thrown into the Thames River, before the attackers left the vehicle and stabbed five people to death around London's busy Borough Market.

Ash Siddique, secretary of the Al-Madina Mosque in Barking, east London, said there had been a number of incidents in which women coming to the mosque had been attacked, including one who was grabbed around the throat at a bus stop.

Inside, they found 13 apparent Molotov cocktails made from wine bottles and a possible flammable liquid. There were also two blowtorches.

Collections will be held at the production of Don Juan, starring David Tennant, at Wyndham's Theatre in London's West End. Police were also reviewing security at "iconic sites", crowded places and major events, and refreshing advice to theatres, bars, shopping centers and sports venues.

Mr Cole said that messages of support from the public "have been fantastic" and said the response from the London community "has been absolutely phenomenal".

Police are questioning seven suspects over suspected links to the attackers, Pakistani-born British citizen Khuram Butt, Moroccan Rachid Redouane, and Youssef Zaghba, an Italian national of Moroccan descent.

On Sunday, the Telegraph reported that Butt applied for a position with a security firm that provides safety stewards for Wimbledon events and Premier League football clubs.

Among the evidence were plastic water bottles, like those used to create the fake suicide belts each of the terrorists was wearing during the attack.

Sufia Alam, manager of the Maryam Centre at the East London Mosque, said the organisation has had reports of Muslim women being verbally abused on buses following the attack. Haydon said since last Saturday they had taken 262 statements from people from 19 different countries and numerous global inquiries were ongoing relating to the attackers and the victims.
