Full text of the remarks to the press by UK Prime Minister Theresa May outside 10 Downing Street, following a terror attack Saturday in London that left seven people dead, 48 injured.
Last night our country fell victim to a brutal terrorist attack once again. As a result I have just chaired a meeting of the Governments emergency committee.
Shortly before 10.10 yesterday evening the Met Police received reports that a white van had struck pedestrians on LondonBridge. It continued to drive from LondonBridge to Borough Market where three terrorists left the van and attack innocent and unarmed civilians with blades and knives.
All three were wearing what appeared to be explosive vests but the police have established that this clothing was fake and worn only to spread panic and fear. As so often in such serious situation, the police responded with great courage and great speed. Armed officers from the Metropolitan Police and the City of London police arrived at Borough Market within moments and shot and killed the three suspects.
