The Rt Rev Martin Seeley, Bishop of the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich, and Suffolk's most senior Church of England clergyman, said: "My heart goes out to the family and friends of Jack Merritt and Saskia Jones, both Cambridge graduates, tragically killed in the terror attack at London Bridge on Friday".

Both papers were promoting the Conservative Party line, the Daily Mail headline NEW BLITZ ON FREED JIHADIS nearly identical to the Daily Express' BORIS BLIT ON FREED JIHADIS BEGINS. R.I.P. Jack: "you were a lovely spirit who always took the side of the underdog".

The family of Jones said the twenty-three-year-old had a "wonderful thirst for knowledge" and a 'great passion for providing invaluable support to victims of criminal injustice'.

"I have been working with Warren Hill on a rehabilitation project during the past year, linking community-based mentors with prisoners preparing for release and the impact has so far been very positive".

Mr Williamson also praised other members of staff, including those who normally "deal with coats and serving coffees" but instead made "instant decisions" that helped save lives. Williamson told the BBC that Lukasz suffered cuts in a minute of "one-on-one straight combat" with the knifeman.

His father, David, tweeted that his son "would not wish his death to be used as the pretext for more draconian sentences or for detaining people unnecessarily".

The 34-year-old was arrested on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts and recalled to prison due to a suspected breach of his licence conditions.

The force has said there is no information to suggest he was involved in Khan's attack at London Bridge.

The US Department of Justice has filed 13 criminal charges against Huawei and Meng, including conspiracy, fraud and disability. Ms Meng wrote that life on bail passed "so slow that I have enough time to read a book from cover to cover.

The event was organised held by Learning Together, a programme associated with Cambridge University's Institute of Criminology.

"It does not make sense for us as a society to be putting people who are convicted of terrorist offences, serious, violent offences, out on early release", said Mr Johnson.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan told Monday's vigil that, in the face of tragedy, people should "take hope from the heroism of ordinary Londoners and emergency services who ran toward danger, risking their lives to help people they didn't even know".

Convicted of terror offences in February 2012, he was released from prison on licence in December 2018, halfway through his 16-year prison sentence.

And former Tory justice minister Phillip Lee - who has since defected to the Lib Dems - launched an attack on Mr Johnson, accusing him of "lying and misleading" in the wake of the tragedy.

The medical director for the NHS in London, Dr Vin Diwakar, said on Sunday that one of the three people injured in the attack had been allowed to return home while the other two remain in a stable condition in hospital.

Astonishing footage showed two men on London Bridge - one brandishing an antique narwhal tusk grabbed from the conference hall, the other a fire extinguisher - confronting Khan.

No-one else is being sought over the attack.
