Referring to his previous remarks about shoot-to-kill, he says: "The points I made in the past particularly in relation to Northern Ireland - this is going back quite a long way - was that there was a concern in Northern Ireland that the police were adopting a shoot-to-kill policy when it was possible to arrest people rather than shoot people".

"The best way to defeat this hatred is not by turning on one another, but by focussing on the values that bind us, to take hope from the heroism of ordinary Londoners and our emergency services who ran towards danger, risking their lives to help people they didn't even know", said London Mayor Sadiq Khan at the vigil.

The attack which killed both Saskia Jones and Jack Merritt took place just outside of Fishmongers' Hall near London Bridge.

He was keen to portray his rival for prime minister, Jeremy Corbyn, as being weak on crime, blaming the Labour Party for bringing in a law that automatically released some prisoners early when it was in government more than a decade ago.

The remembrance service at Guildhall Yard comes as West Midlands Police said a 34-year-old man arrested in Stoke-on-Trent on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts has been recalled to prison due to a suspected breach of his licence conditions.

Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson, second right, Home Secretary Priti Patel, center, and Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Cressida Dick, left, attend the scene in central London, Saturday, Nov. 30, 2019, after an attack on London Bridge on Friday.

Mr Corbyn, campaigning in his Islington North constituency, said convicted terrorists should have to serve a "significant proportion" of their jail sentences, and should only be released when they have been properly rehabilitated and present no threat to the public. R.I.P. Jack: "you were a handsome spirit who always took the side of the underdog".

On Sunday, David Merritt tweeted, "Don't use my son's death, and his and his colleague's photos - to promote your vile propaganda".

"Jack stood against everything you stand for - hatred, division, ignorance", he said.

Ms Jones was "intent on living life to the full and had a wonderful thirst for knowledge, enabling her to be the best she could be", her family said in a statement.

Family liaison officers are supporting their families.

BORIS JOHNSON yesterday blamed Labour for the early release of London Bridge killer Usman Khan, despite the party not being in power since 2010. Khan was attending a Learning Together event when he began his attack.

Armed with two knives and wearing a fake suicide vest, he was tackled by members of the public, including ex-offenders from the conference, before he was shot dead by police. Among the three others who sustained injuries in the attack - whose identities have not yet been released by the police - one was a member of university staff.

No-one else is being sought over the attack.
