The actions of the public have been widely praised, including by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and Ms Dick, who said they had shown "extreme courage".
Videos posted on social media on Friday appeared to show passers-by holding Khan down, while a man in a suit could be seen running from him, having apparently retrieved a large knife.
One witness described how a man at the event at Fishmongers' Hall grabbed a narwhal tusk - a long white horn that protrudes from the porpoise - that was on the wall, and went outside to confront the attacker.


Glad someone was there with a narwhal tusk, who knows what could have happened if they weren't there with their tusk to get involved.

From the sounds of it, it was more a personal issue than a broad scale type terrorist attack. Sounds like he might have had specific targets...


Good on the locals for standing up to the ass and peace for the families of the dead.

Yeah knife crime is over the top these days in gun free London.


BBC News

New figures obtained by BBC News show police forces across England and Wales are charging fewer people with knife crime, though the number of offences is on the rise.

Our special correspondent Ed Thomas has been out to witness the shocking reality of knife crime on the streets of our capital.

It's lucky it's very difficult to get guns in Britain. Otherwise he would have gone on a shooting spree and likely killed more people. Instead, he had to make do with a knife.

London Bridge: Attacker had been convicted of terror offence


The man who carried out Friday's stabbing attack at London Bridge was a former prisoner convicted of terrorism offences.

The attacker, named by police as 28-year-old Usman Khan , was out of prison on licence at the time of the attack, in which a man and a woman were killed and three others were injured.

Khan was shot dead by officers after members of the public restrained him.
The Queen said she was "saddened" by the attack.

She thanked the emergency services "as well as the brave individuals who put their own lives at risk to selflessly help and protect others".

Police declared the attack a terrorist incident.


Khan was known to the authorities, having been convicted for terrorism offences in 2012 . He was released from prison on licence in December 2018, Met Police Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said.

The Parole Board said it had no involvement in the 28-year-old's release, saying he "appears to have been released automatically on licence (as required by law)".

The Times reported that Khan's release came after he agreed to wear an electronic tag and have his movements monitored.

Prisoner rehabilitation

The attack began at 13:58 GMT on Friday at Fishmongers' Hall, at the north end of London Bridge, where a Cambridge University conference on prisoner rehabilitation - called Learning Together - was taking place.

The suspect had been attending the event, where dozens of people - including students and former prisoners - were present.

Mr Basu said the attack is understood to have started inside the building before continuing onto London Bridge itself, where Khan was shot by armed officers.

Police are carrying out a search believed to be linked to the attack at flats in Stafford, close to the town centre.

Mr Basu said police were not actively seeking anyone else in relation to the attack, although they were making "fast time enquiries" to make sure there was no outstanding threat to the public.

Two victims

A man and a woman were killed during the attack. Three others - a man and two women - were also injured and remain in hospital.

Simon Stevens, head of the NHS, said, on Friday, that one was in a critical but stable condition, another was stable and the third had less serious injuries.

None of those killed or injured has so far been named and officers were still working to identify those who died, Met Commissioner Cressida Dick said on Friday.

Convicted murderer rushed to help





One of those who rushed to help during the attack was a convicted murderer who was attending the prisoner rehabilitation event on day release, the Times has reported.

James Ford, 42, was jailed for life with a minimum of 15 years in 2004 for the murder of Amanda Champion , a 21-year-old woman with learning difficulties.



Cambridge election hustings cancelled





A hustings event which was due to take place in Cambridge today with all the city's election candidates has been cancelled.

Great St Mary's Church church added that a service of remembrance will be held at midday instead.

Labour's parliamentary candidate for the city Daniel Zeichner called an immediate halt to campaigning in Cambridge and said the attack had "shocked everyone".

He added: "It seems to have been targeted on an event being held by the Institute of Criminology in the University of Cambridge, an event focused on rehabilitation.

"We do not yet know the full details, but it will clearly have had a devastating and traumatic effect on people from, in and around Cambridge, those organising the event and attending in particular.

"All our thoughts are with those who have lost their lives and have been injured, and our thanks go to the emergency services and those who intervened at considerable risk to themselves."

The Cambridge branch of the Liberal Democrats said it had also suspended campaigning.


New photos of the police search in Stafford

Our reporter Ben Perrin is in Stafford, where police continue to search a property where it's thought Usman Khan lived.

New images show blue forensic screens or tents at the entrance to the property, while a police cordon remains in place.







PM Boris Johnson visits scene





Prime Minister Boris Johnson has arrived at the scene of the attack on London Bridge which killed two people on Friday afternoon.


Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick and the commissioner of the City of London Police, Ian Dyson, have also been pictured on the bridge.


The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan is expected to visit the south side of the bridge later this afternoon.



Khan was a friend of terrorist Anjem Choudary, convicted of supporting Islamic State






Bad to the bone: Moment hero Polish chef called Luckasz used a narwhal tusk to tackle London Bridge terrorist after grabbing it off the wall at Fishmongers Hall




The hero who grabbed a narwhal tusk to fight off the London Bridge attacker has been identified as a kitchen worker at Fishmongers' Hall. The tusk can be seen in dramatic footage from London Bridge, in which a group of at least six men are seen disarming knifeman Usman Khan, 28, who wore a fake suicide vest. The kitchen worker, identified as Luckasz, tried to pin Khan down using what was reported to be a narwhal tusk as the attacker stabbed his hand. Luckasz's collegue, who asked to remain anonymous, told The Times: 'Luckasz grabbed a nearby pole and ran at him, getting stabbed in the hand in the process but continued to pin him down. 'Being stabbed didn't stop him giving him a beating. Luckasz is a hero.' Luckasz is thought to have suffered from cuts but is not critically injured.

That makes perfect sense. Alcoholics don't have the drive or train of thought needed to pull off terrorism.

I'm highly surprised Corbyn praised the public rather than the terrorist.

It must be hard for him to lie in such a way due to the election campaign.

You had selective reading comprehension again.


I didn't say it WASN'T a terrorist attack.


I totally agree it was.


I said it was just more personally motivated than the more broader terrorist attacks, according to what I'd read about it at the time.


I DO agree with you that it's damn lucky the guy had no gun, and was the first thought I HAD about the incident.


Again, good on the guys who stood up to this terrorist using what tools they had; SMART on them.

There's Maajid Nawaz, one of the panellists on Sky News current events talkshow The Pledge:

Maajid Usman Nawaz (Urdu: [ˈmaːdʒɪd̪ nəwaːz]; born 2 November 1977)[1] is a British activist and radio presenter. He is the founding chairman of Quilliam, a counter-extremism think tank that seeks to challenge the narratives of Islamist extremists, and the host of a radio show on LBC, every Saturday and Sunday.



Born in Southend-on-Sea, Essex to a British Pakistani family, Nawaz is a former member of the Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir. This association led to his arrest in Egypt in December 2001, where he remained imprisoned until 2006. Reading books on human rights and interacting with Amnesty International, which adopted him as a prisoner of conscience, resulted in a change of heart: he left Hizb-ut-Tahrir in 2007, renounced his Islamist past, and called for a "secular Islam". After his turnaround, Nawaz co-founded Quilliam with former Islamists, including Ed Husain.[2] He wrote an autobiography, Radical (2012) and has since become a prominent critic of Islamism in the United Kingdom.

He is a weekly columnist for The Daily Beast, and his writings have been published in various international newspapers, he appears frequently on television, and has delivered lectures including at the UK Defence Academy and Marshall Center for Security Studies. His second book, Islam and the Future of Tolerance (2015), co-authored with atheist author Sam Harris, was published in October 2015. He was the Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for London's Hampstead and Kilburn constituency in the 2015 general election.[3]

Yeah, you're right.

It's still been officially classified as a terrorist attack, though, perpetrated by a known Islamist with links to the notorious Anjem Choudary.
