The mayor of London has paid tribute to the victims of the London Bridge terror attack, saying his thoughts "are with the families and friends who lost loved ones... and who are having to adjust to grieving in very different and difficult circumstances this year".

Eight people were killed after three men drove into pedestrians on the bridge and then stabbed people in nearby Borough Market three years ago.

In a statement Sadiq Khan said:

The cowardly terrorists who commit these dreadful acts do so to try and divide us, and to change how we treat one another. But we should be proud of the way our city has responded – time and time again – by remaining united. Londoners will always see our diversity as one of our greatest strengths, and we will continue to honour the innocent victims by staying true to the values that bind us together.”
