London Bridge attack: What happened?

There will be a national minute's silence to remember the people killed and injured in the London Bridge attack a year ago.

On 3 June 2017, eight people died and 48 others were injured when a white van hit pedestrians on London Bridge at about 10pm.

Three men then got out and attacked people in nearby Borough Market.

Police arrived within a few minutes and the three men believed to be responsible for the attack were killed by officers.

A private service remembering the victims will be held at Southwark Cathedral today, and lots of other events are taking place to mark the anniversary of the attack.

The hashtag #LondonUnited was projected onto London Bridge on Saturday night and will be done again on Sunday.
