London Bridge attacker was a convicted terrorist
Authorities have confirmed the man responsible for the terror attack on London Bridge was a convicted terrorist who had recently been released from prison and was on parole. Two people were killed when the man attacked members of the public with a knife on Friday afternoon local time. Three others were injured and taken to hospital, Met Police Commissioner Cressida Dick said. One is in a critical but stable condition, another is stable and the third suffered less serious injuries. Footage showed members of the public attempting to detain the suspect and taking possession of the bladed weapon.
A man who helped tackle a knife-wielding terrorist who killed two people near London Bridge said he intervened because it was "what any Londoner would do".
Thomas Gray, 24, was among a group of men who dragged the killer to the floor near Fishmongers' Hall on Friday.
