chris mason is in westminster — will security dominate the final three days of campaigning? i think it is inevitable. it is extraordinary that the second time ina very extraordinary that the second time in a very short election campaign there was a pause, and heating of a mute button yesterday for just a couple of hours as politicians reflected on what had happened in london on saturday night and stopped their national campaigns. this morning there was definitely a resumption of campaigning. there was, indeed, a resumption last night. jeremy corbyn had spicy remarks about police cuts and how in his view there would be far more police officers recruited under labour. here is that lee is putting some the responsibility around

ariana grande revealed that she had met the mother of one of the teenagers who died at the arena. i had the pleasure of meeting olivia's mommy, a few days ago, and as soon as i met her i started crying and i gave her a big hug, and she said that... "stop crying because olivia would not have wanted me to cry," and then she told me that olivia would have wanted to hear the hits. security was tight and visible and everywhere. there were stories of strength and resilience. we heard the bang. and i got hit, like, in my upper left thigh and i had to go to hospital and have an operation on it. i'm really excited, like, yeah, because i really enjoy concerts so it is not going to stop me. artists flew in from all over the globe to take part, many with words of support for the uk. manchester, london!

6:15 am
backin and great written's chris froome is back in action as he warms up for this year ‘s tour to france, his 15th overall. in the first stage of the criterion. he is looking for a record fourth win. it does look good for him so far. let's catch up with the weather, i think i've heard word of rain. good morning. absolutely rightly, some of us morning. absolutely rightly, some of us have a deluge at the moment but as we go through the week we are looking at heavy rain, also pretty windy at times and it will turn that bit warmer later in the week because it will be a cool start and the reason it will turn warmer is because the wind will change direction. we've seen quite a bit of rain already this morning, particularly heavy in parts of north wales but there's a lot in scotland and western parts of the uk. moving out now of northern ireland, though. through the morning it will be
6:16 am
accompanied by a gusty wind, you can see the progress the rain is making. brightening up in scotland and northern ireland and here we are looking at sunshine and showers and some showers could be heavy and thundery, especially in scotland and if you're caught under one it will pull down the temperature so feeling quite cool. in northern ireland, a similar story, sunshine and showers, chilly if you're caught under a shower, more persistent rain in northern england, especially cumbria and lancashire and wales. some of that will be heavy. heavy as it pushes in through south—west england, as denoted by the greens and yellows, moving across the midlands, not getting into norfolk, suffolk, essex or kent but it will later and you can see how we've got the gusty winds moving in, a temporary respite and through the night the wind picks up and changes direction to a north—westerly. at the same time the rain continues in
6:17 am
across northern england and pushes into scotland. as a result it won't bea into scotland. as a result it won't be a cold night, not a particularly nice one either and there will be a lot of surface water and spray around. on tuesday the low pressure bringing asked israel is still anchored across scotland, with this trailing weather front we will see rain notjust in scotland but eastern england again, quite a blustery day. windy in the channel islands into the south—west and gales with exposure. rain in the north turning more showery and showers in southern parts of england, wales and northern ireland. temperatures, and 12 to 18. as we head on into wednesday, we have the re m na nts of head on into wednesday, we have the remnants of the rain moving across north—east scotland, a respite, still quite blue and still quite mild in the east but more rain coming in from the west across northern ireland, wales and south—west england. that is courtesy of this weather front here. it's quite a complicated system. they will continue to move across
6:18 am
southern areas, you can see the low pressure coming in behind them, so thursday, we're not out of the woods, but on thursday, look at the isobars changing woods, but on thursday, look at the isoba rs changing directions woods, but on thursday, look at the isobars changing directions of the wind coming from the south—west. a milder direction, not feeling as cold but we have all this rain sweeping steadily northwards. into northern ireland and ahead of it across scotland and northern ireland, a bit drierand across scotland and northern ireland, a bit drier and brighter, temperatures 13 to 20. looking u nsettled temperatures 13 to 20. looking unsettled but at the moment where charlie is in london, it is dry. charlie. thank you very much. we are spending the morning in london as close as we can bid to london bridge. you'll get a sense behind me if you look over my right shoulder, and as carol was saying, bright skies in london, you can see the shard in the distance and we have borough market in the foreground and you can see the flowers gathering. it's interesting, those hash tags, love for london, a
6:19 am
number of flowers have been laid for the victims of the terrible attack here on saturday night. i was mindful watching, as i know you have been, some of the events in manchester, the concert last night, and the atmosphere around that, some was pure celebration, some was a tribute to those who lost their lives but there was clearly an air of defiance. as you can hear, a lot of defiance. as you can hear, a lot of traffic moving behind the camera, london has been in this situation before, been through terrible terror attacks and has had to find a way to react. tim muffet has been talking to some of those people in london to find out their feelings about how to react to an incident like this. ten weeks after terror came to westminster bridge, one day after another horrific attack two miles along the thames. we're walking from west minster to london bridge, asking how the capital is coping.
6:20 am
west minster to london bridge, asking how the capital is copingm isi asking how the capital is copingm is i bit scary coming back on the tubes and onto the south bank a day after everything happened but you have to do it, you have to live your life. i refuse to let the terrorists limit our lives to one room, one house in one little town. this is our beautiful city now and we are here to live it. the freeds moved to london from south africa 17 years ago. we were funnily enough planning on coming to london bridge today. obviously it's closed so we thought to ourselves, you know what, stuff this, we're going to have a nice day out in london and not let these terrorists ruin it for us. do you ever think it will be normal in the light of such atrocities?” ever think it will be normal in the light of such atrocities? i think eve ryo ne light of such atrocities? i think everyone mucks in together and defies what's been going on. as you
6:21 am
can see, no one looks in fear. following the attacks on westminster bridge, many remarked on how quickly life in the capital seemed to return to normal. in manchester there was a similar message of defiance, and in london, yet again, it's what most people are telling us. you can't let these people interfere with our lives. all these people rely on me buying a book because they want to earn a living. i think you have to d efy earn a living. i think you have to defy them. and yet for all the defiance, for some things do feel different. i think people when they hear the sirens today pause, that's what i've noticed. instead of itjust being pa rt noticed. instead of itjust being part of normal life, they pause to
6:22 am
think, what's happened there? remainer and esther nelly of have visited london from argentina many times. now they're not sure if they'll return. it's not a good place now, london, really! dangerous do you think? dangerous, yes. you would think twice about coming back to london? yes. near to london bridge where buses caught up in the attack remained parked, robin and his partner gordon are feeling anguish and relief. they'd been due to visit a bar in borough market on saturday night but changed their plans at the last minute. we just wa nted plans at the last minute. we just wanted to pay our respects. we could have been right in the middle of it. it's important everyone carries on with normality and doesn't back down to terrorism in any shape or form. defiant, resilient, robin and gordon
6:23 am
speakfor so defiant, resilient, robin and gordon speak for so many londoners. defiant, resilient, robin and gordon speakfor so many londoners. tim muffet, bbc news. we will be speaking to tim later, he is talking about first responders and people being treated in hospital with regards to that attack. the prime minister has called for social media firms to do more to crack down on extremist material after the london bridge terror attack. theresa may accused internet giants of giving terrorists a safe place to breathe. dave lee is in silicon valley where many of the companies are based. good morning. what is their response to what theresa may has had to say? the response is defending themselves, they say we do a lot of work and we spend a lot of money in trying to solve the problem, google said they spent hundreds of millions of pounds trying to combat extremist content that appears on a variety of their services, youtube or elsewhere. facebook has said the same thing, they say they work hard to make sure the content doesn't
6:24 am
spread and if they find it they notify the police as soon as they ca nt notify the police as soon as they cant and twitter has said a similar thing today. silicon valley is feeling on the defensive, they want to make sure governments know they are doing and using the tools they have at their disposal but what they also want to do is make sure new regulations are put in place that as they could see it could lower the privacy and protections of these networks for all users rather than just a few. slightly defensive but slightly offensive as well to make sure they aren't too broadly affected by what they think could be knee—jerk reactions. affected by what they think could be knee-jerk reactions. give us a sense of the scale of all the content that is being uploaded to these sites. of the scale of all the content that is being uploaded to these sitesm is being uploaded to these sitesm is huge, hundreds and hundreds of hours every second uploaded to youtube, and some of that, as you would expect, is extremist content. they've done an incredible amount of work to try to solve that but some slips through, there was a recent issue youtube had with advertising
6:25 am
appearing next to this content so in many ways these extremists were being funded by having youtube videos but as soon as that was brought to their attention they say they've done what they can to stop that. where the debate will move to now is encroaching, we had stories in the last few months about whether encrypted messaging services, very ha rd to read encrypted messaging services, very hard to read those messages if you are in the intelligence services, whether that should be allowed, whether that should be allowed, whether encrypted messaging apps should be used as widely as they are but the argument against that kind of thing is terrorists could simply move to a different platform if they're not on facebook or elsewhere. dave lee, our bbc north america technology correspondent, thank you. there are just days to go till the general election, so steph is back on the road with the breakfast butty van this morning talking to voters. today she's in the north—east, which voted overwhelmingly to leave the eu. good morning, steph.
6:26 am
good morning, everybody and good morning to you, i'm with the angel of the north pier, created by antony gormley, it is the size of four double—decker buses —— angel of the north. we are in gateshead talking about the election. the election campaigning starting again today and only three days to go until people will be voting. it is of course this area that voted overwhelmingly to leave the. paul is from the city and can you give us leave the. paul is from the city and can you give us some leave the. paul is from the city and can you give us some context? this is interesting, it was quite a shock eve ryo ne is interesting, it was quite a shock everyone voted here to leave given we have the nissan factory and do a lot of trading with europe? there's the big balance, loads of trading from the north—east, especially through cars but a lot of people felt that the place had been left behind for many years, when you look
6:27 am
at average wages, they are lower, and chances up the career ladder, they are limited and people reacted to that. what does this mean for the election? traditionally a labour area but people felt they had been let down by all of the parties, so interesting to see where the vote goes. we will be talking to you later. time now to get the news, travel and weather where you are. good morning from bbc london news, i'm alice bhandhukravi. as the working week begins, tens of thousands of commuters will pass through london bridge station, which as we know was at the centre of saturday's terror attack. as we can see, borough high street remains closed at the junction with great dover street. london bridge station is now open, access to the underground and mainline trains is only via the tooley street entrance.

spend your life as a fast all, you get injured, you fall down the pecking order, you come in and you do or don't perform well. that is the cycle of cricket and the way it goes. if you are uncomfortable with that and you can't be at peace with it, you will do worse. so i am relaxed with the fact that i keep on trying to do my best every time i walk onto the pitch. real madrid fans turned out in their thousands to celebrate their team's champions league victory yesterday. i should warn you there are flashing images coming up. real beatjuventus 4—1 in saturday's final, as they won the european cup for the second successive season. cristiano ronaldo and his team—mates showed off the trophy on a bus tour through the spanish capital. after that there was a spectacular lights and firework show as 81,000 fans crammed into real‘s santiago bernabeu stadium. incredible pictures of celebration.
6:41 am
they really are. they were certainly very pleased. an incredible achievement to retain that trophy. let's get more now on our top story. police said they have identified the three men who carried out the london bridge attack. charlie is right there for us this morning. charlie, very much we can seek armed police in evidence on the streets of london this morning. thank you very much. you can probably get a sense of the scene behind me. it is always this way. sometimes after such a dreadful event you wake up on monday morning in london, of course, we have been in this situation before. we have sunshine and the shard behind us, this area immediately around me here, armed police officers, flowers, of course on saturday night this area was the scene of such horror with three attackers colliding first on the bridge itself and then climbing out of the van and
6:42 am
running around and stabbing a number of people. we know that 21 people are still in critical gaea. we will getan are still in critical gaea. we will get an update on the situation with the victim is a little later. we have had the first official victim named, chrissy archibald who was from canada. she was engaged and had moved to europe to be with her fiance. that has been confirmed today. let's talk a little bit about the investigation. we will be speaking to cressida dick and getting the very latest from the metropolitan police enquiry later this morning we know this morning that 12 arrests have been made and 11 people remain in custody. the ages of the people, between 19 and 60 years old. we will update you on some of the security issues now. i'm joined now by will get is, the security specialist. good morning. it is always was being in the circumstances. sunshine of a london morning in the wake of such a
6:43 am
terrible ordealfor morning in the wake of such a terrible ordeal for those people who we re terrible ordeal for those people who were caught up in it. there will be many people coming in to london today to their jobs many people coming in to london today to theirjobs and especially in this area who will be feeling a little more anxious than they may normally. having said that when i was walking around you today it was pretty much business as usual. people are becoming far more robust to these situations and although we have had three now in close succession here in the united kingdom, i think we are almost becoming a little numb to it. let's talk about the investigation. 12 arrests made, 11 people in custody. what do you think is the scale of the enquiry under way? it is immense. localforensics the enquiry under way? it is immense. local forensics work that will be undertaken here to look at, obviously, the m—mode and the attack method of these three individuals is critical of the lessons learned exercise as to what mitigation measures can be introduced in the future. beyond that, the identities
6:44 am
are known to the authorities so they will be forensically going through their entire life everything from their entire life everything from their phone to their digital footprints, theirfamily their phone to their digital footprints, their family and everything else. they will then be moving back information to their cou nterpa rts moving back information to their counterparts overseas in europe united states middle east to seal what kind of threads there may be to the tapestry. we are always cautious about information emerging while and acquire is ongoing but of course? being asked about the use the van. most are not dissimilar to what happened at westminster. you get information from sources you have about issues. what are you hearing? inevitably, one must be cautious because there is all sorts of information in the immediate aftermath. certainly one piece of information that i have received, again, it needs to be corroborated by the authorities, is that the van itself had a number of bottles of flammable liquid and also had waited
6:45 am
concrete blocks in the back. this is interesting because, perhaps, it reinterprets what that vehicle may have additionally been considered to be used for. we have seen this previously in the least, an improvised explosive device in a vehicle. it is speculation as to whether or not that is way those items were now, authorities will confirm that or not later. it is worth saying that we are speaking directly to the metropolitan police commissioner and she will be with us later on. we will get the latest in terms of any arrests that may have been made and also the question marks over the sequence of events, the response, of course, many with huge amounts of praise for the police operation as it kicked in just eight minutes from the moment they got the first call of the incident to those three attackers being shot dead. and, as we know this morning, the police say they do
6:46 am
know the identities for operational reasons as yet are not revealing those identities. for the moment, thatisit those identities. for the moment, that is it from here. bye for now. this morning it's a pretty wet start to the day for some but not in london as we've just seen and as we head through the week, some heavy rain around, also windy at times, some of us seeing some gales, especially with exposure. cool wind but it changes direction towards the end of the week and we will start to see the wind coming from the south—west, turning a bit warmer. you can see the extent of the rainfall we've had this morning, some of it particularly heavy in north wales. all that rainfall is drifting eastwards and it's accompanied by gusty winds. ahead of it in central and eastern areas where of two a dry start and behind it we see a return to sunshine and showers, but some showers could be heavy and thundery in scotland. in between them there will be pleasant sunshine, temperatures a bit disappointing for this stage in
6:47 am
june. in northern ireland, again, sunshine and showers, a tad on the cool side if you're stuck under one of those, more persistent rain in northern lincoln, especially cumbria and lancashire. wet across wales, that rate pushing across the midlands —— northumbria and lancashire. the wind eases for a touch and then it will strengthen through the evening and overnight, coming from a north—westerly direction. particularly around the bristol channel and south—western approaches and at the same time a band of rain pushes again across northern england and back into scotland. temperature wise, staying in double figures but a lot of surface water and sprayed on the roads if you're travelling and there's the risk of localised flooding. it's all due to this area of low pressure that will be ensconced in scotland tomorrow with its trailing front introducing rain
6:48 am
in western parts of england. blustery conditions, quite windy, especially on the english channel coast like adjacent to the bristol channel and you can see where we have some showers and some of them could be heavy and thundery. as we head on into wednesday, how rain continues to advance steadily to the north—east. still blustery winds, a lot of dry weather and then the next system is swinging from the south—west, introducing more rain. temperature wise, note the change in wind direction, coming from the south—west so back up at 20, but a more northerly component in the north so it's that bit lower. that system north so it's that bit lower. that syste m m oves a cross north so it's that bit lower. that system moves across southern areas during the course of wednesday and you can see the trailing front is coming in behind it, so thursday, we're still pulling in this southerly wind and still a fair bit of rain moving in across the south, heading slowly northwards. the far north of the country hangs onto drier and brighter conditions with sunshine and temperatures between 13 and 20. thank you very much, we will see you
6:49 am
in about half an hour. it was a evening of defiance, celebration and unity in manchester last night as 50,000 fans packed into an all—star concert held to remember the victims of the suicide bombing at an ariana grande concert on the 22 may. but it brought back difficult memories for some. brea kfast‘s graham satchell caught up with a mother and daughter who were at the manchester arena. not quite two weeks after the attack in manchester and not quite 24 hours after the latest outrage in london. 50,000 people came to a concert determined to enjoy themselves. manchester stands together and i think you can see the atmosphere, it's amazing. no one should say anything bad about what's happened, it should just be happy. anything bad about what's happened, it shouldjust be happy. for 13—year—old lucy and her mum amri, it's not that simple. this is a fantastic gesture that this concert has taken place but i still believe
6:50 am
it is too soon. you see has been having panic attacks through the night, not sleeping, and then when you think you finally are making some progress and moving on, it comes back. what have the last two weeks been like? just stressful and not been happy. lucy and ann-marie we re not been happy. lucy and ann-marie were at the manchester arena two weeks ago, we filmed with them a day after. i was very terrified and scared. ijust don't understand why they would be so horrible to people. just getting too last night's concert after witnessing the horrors of the suicide bomber, and of extraordinary achievement. so proud of lucy for agreeing to come today, but i'm very nervous. this is a massive step for all of us today.
6:51 am
just before the concert, lucy and her mum released two balloons, their personal way of remembering those who lost their lives two weeks ago. the concert itself saw a remarkable return to manchester for ariana grande. compassion, dignity, courage at just grande. compassion, dignity, courage atjust 23. grande. compassion, dignity, courage at just 23. with grande. compassion, dignity, courage atjust 23. with her, stars from all over the world likejustin bieber, with the clear message of the night. love, love, love! love, love, love! there were heartwarming moments, heartbreaking moments. it was a night that saw the very best of manchester. lucy and ann—marie hugely appreciative. they were all brilliant, absolutely brilliant, every single one of them. but for us, you know, it's not going to take
6:52 am
away that memory of last week. are you pleased you came? yeah. do you think overall you enjoy skip? yeah. good, good. at least you got a smile on yourface. good, good. at least you got a smile on your face. first time in two weeks. that's great, isn't it? absolutely brilliant. it's a small first step. a moment of normality in what has been a deeply traumatic time. graham satchell, bbc news, manchester. i'm sure they won't be alone in the way they feel, thank you to lucy and anne marie for talking to us. as we've been hearing, the election campaign continues and steph is back on the road with the breakfast butty van this morning. she's in gateshead finding out how the business community is responding to what the political parties have been saying on brexit. ican i can spot an angel! there's two angels of the north, kidding, not
6:53 am
me! a beautiful geordie landmark, this created by antony gormley, for anyone that lives in this region, a lwa ys anyone that lives in this region, always get the sense of home when you see it on your drive up the a1. we've been travelling all over the uk talking to people about what they wa nt uk talking to people about what they want from the election. this is an interesting area, it's had some really tough times, but it's the only region that is a net exporter, so we're sending out more from the region and we are importing, which means trade is important to the region. we're looking this morning at what people in the region, businesses, want to hear in the run—up to the election in terms of what brexit could mean. i've got some guests with us this morning, stephen, the boss of sage, you work with a lot of small businesses, what are they saying in terms of what they want to hear on brexit in the run—up to the election? they want to hear on brexit in the run-up to the election? 5396 of the businesses in the uk use sage to pay their employees so we feel we are
6:54 am
their employees so we feel we are the voice and champion of entrepreneurs. they're saying they need politicians to step up and provide great positive leadership and a positive vision. a couple of things in that respect, when business does well then we all do well. in the run—up to the brexit vote doom mongers said terrible things but the nation has powered on mainly due to the entrepreneurs that get up early to show that commitment and energy —— those. in this day and age we need to stand up and have a positive dialogue with the eu, the re st of positive dialogue with the eu, the rest of the world and sustain small business. what they are saying when we polled them, it's interesting, it's probably a campaign when every day there are fairytale promises but no one is paying attention to the people footing the bill, the entrepreneurs. we have launched a letter today with the entrepreneurs network written to each party leader saying there's fundamental things to support entrepreneurs, it's the same things we know about, reduction of
6:55 am
red tape and bureaucracy and tsipras occasion of the tax system, better support for export and support for the digital economy —— simplification. let me bring you in on that, entrepreneurship is your thing, you are from durham university business school. is it similarto university business school. is it similar to what stephen is saying? very much so, there is a requirement for clarity, what is going to happen. if you're running your own business and planning ahead is an intrinsic and important part of getting your business planning right. i run the mba entrepreneurship pathway at durham business school and the students we have, many of which are keen to run their own businesses, are desperately keen to find out what it is they need to plan for. is there going to be more red tape or less red tape? entrepreneurship isn't just a european phenomenon, it is international and we are a global
6:56 am
business school with global students and they all want to know where the european story fits into their jigsaw. david, you are a big exporter? over 7096 of our business is export, that is all over the world, including the eu, and what we needis world, including the eu, and what we need is clarity and we need certainty and that is the biggest thing missing at this time. we need strong leadership, but also we need to work with the european union through this process of brexit, so i think some of the more confrontational things that have been said aren't always particularly helpful because we need to achieve a win win at the end of the day. the biggest thing we want to do in business is we want to move forward, so we business is we want to move forward, so we want a swift conclusion to the negotiations so that we have got that clarity and we can plan for the future because whatever people's personal views, we've voted for brexit so we have to crack on and get on with it. i'm going to talk to
6:57 am
you later about that. we're going to sort you out with some breakfast and we've got some professionals in. i think i've got the sack from doing it! sharon and paul. not looking too bad. we will do the taste test shortly. that's it for me. as long as you stay out of the van they are all as you stay out of the van they are a ll safe! as you stay out of the van they are all safe! see you later! we will have the headlines at 7am. time now to get the news, travel and weather where you are. good morning from bbc london news, i'm alice bhandhukravi. as the working week begins, tens of thousands of commuters will pass through london bridge station, which as we know was at the centre of saturday's terror attack. so let's go straight to the travel situation in the area around borough market. as we can see, borough high street remains closed at the junction with great dover street.
6:58 am
london bridge station is now open, access to the underground and mainline trains is only via the tooley street entrance. london bridge remains closed southbound. northbound is now open for traffic and pedestrians. southwark street closed eastbound at southwark bridge. looking at the rest of the tube network, the waterloo & city line has no service signal failure. new security barriers have been installed overnight on some bridges in central london. these pictures are from westminster bridge. similar measures have been taken at lambeth and waterloo following saturday's terror attack at london bridge. transport for london say they're supporting the response from the metropolitan police. yesterday members of london's muslim community came out in condemnation of the attack and offered their solidarity to london's victims. on the one hand it was our great city that was coming under attack and so many innocent souls were killed, and on the other hand our great religion was attacked as well, i mean, these people tarnished the name of our religion. we just need to show solidarity because this matters to us,
6:59 am
this is london, we're londoners. mayor of london sadiq khan has announced a vigil will be held this evening in honour of the victims of this weekends terror attack. people have been invited to potters fields park, next to city hall, at 6pm, to remember the seven people who died, support the injured and show their gratitude to the emergency service workers. a minute's silence will also be held at 6:20pm. let's have a check on the weather now with kate kinsella. good morning. it's feeling a touch cooler than it has done recently, some cloud around this morning but breaks in the cloud leading to some sunny intervals, the rain not arriving until a little later so on the whole this morning it's dry. showers arriving really as we head towards lunchtime ahead of the main band of rain. cloud increasing from the west and the breeze starts to strengthen. the rain, some heavy persistent rain as we head towards the end of the afternoon. the maximum temperature between 17 and 19. this rain quite heavy for a time but gradually as we head towards the early hours of tomorrow morning it starts to break up a little.
7:00 am
stays quite breezy overnight, minimum temperature between 11 and 12. still some showers as we head through tuesday but they will blow through quite quickly on that still quite strong breeze. some dry spells between, we could hear a rumble or two of thunder, the maximum tomorrow around 17 or 18. a brief bit of respite for wednesday. a drier, brighter day with some sunshine ahead of this warm front, overnight wednesday into thursday bringing more rain as we go to thursday itself. it stays rather unsettled through much of this week. some spells of rain. feeling quite cool for the next couple of days. temperature recovers as we head through thursday as we pick up a south—westerly breeze and then again a drier day for friday. you can find the latest on london bridge terror attack, as well as the rest of the day's news, on our website at the usual address. bye for now. hello, this is breakfast, with charlie stayt at borough market in london — the scene of the third terror attack in the uk in less than three months. police say they they've identified the three men who murdered seven
7:01 am
people and left dozens injured in a brutal assault on saturday night. the first of the victims has been named as christine archibald who was from canada — her family say she had room in her heart for everyone 11 people are in custody following arrests in barking in east london — the islamic state group is claiming its "fighters" carried out the attack. good morning, it's mondayjune 5th. this morning we'll hear from those affected by saturday's attack, and as election campaigning resumes.
7:02 am
qe'll examine proposals to protect the public. —— we'll examine proposals to protect the public. joy shines through the pain at the ariana grande benefit concert for the victims of the manchester bombing — she thanks the crowd for their spirit. i love you all so much and i thank you for coming out. we needed that here. love is the medicine the world needs right now. we're live in gateshead discussing brexit ahead of the election inafew in a few days. i will be talking to businesses about what difference the election could make to our negotiations when it comes to leaving the european union. in sport, andy murray plays in the fourth round of the french open later. he'll hope to join defending champion novak djokovic, who is in the last eight after victory yesterday. and carol has the weather. there has been talk of rain, carol?
7:03 am
good morning. it is raining in scotla nd good morning. it is raining in scotland and that will clear and then for scotland and northern ireland will be a day of sunshine and showers, heavy and thundery. a bright start across central and eastern england, ran across the west of england and wales will cross all areas of the day, accompanied by gusty wind. i will have more details on 15 minutes. welcome to breakfast. we are spending the morning you in borough market in the wake of those dreadful events market in the wake of those dreadful eve nts o n market in the wake of those dreadful events on saturday night. you can see the bright blue sky here and if you look behind me and the street immediately behind you can see the shard in the distance. you can see the armed police officers directly behind me here and just below, some flowers that have been laid in the hours since the event. the streets behind me... this is borough market and these were the scenes of those
7:04 am
very harrowing moment after the three attackers crashed their van on london bridge and then went on a rampage in this area. so many people we re rampage in this area. so many people were injured. 48 in all, 21 in critical care. let us bring you up—to—date with the latest in terms of the enquiry. police say they now know the names of the three attackers — but they don't want to reveal them yet, for operational reasons. seven women and four men were arrested yet today and remain in custody. this morning, counterterrorism officers have detained more people in barking and six properties have been searched. the streets behind me remain closed but london bridge station and the underground station are open again and the bridge itself is in operation once again. you can probably hear the noise of the traffic just behind the probably hear the noise of the trafficjust behind the camera here. these streets will remain cordoned off for some period of time while
7:05 am
the investigation continues. a brief glimpse of the three knifemen as they headed through borough market. gunshots. and then, eight minutes after their attack began, the gunfire, as it was brought to an end. gunshots. in all, eight officers fired 50 rounds. one passerby was hit by a stray bullet. so—called islamic state has now claimed responsibility, as they often do for any terror incident. in london, the police investigation continues apace. in east ham, a man scrambled across buildings, with police weapons trained on him, before apparently being detained. in barking, in east london, 12 people were arrested, seven of them women, as police searched properties thought to be linked to the attackers. one neighbour who did not want to be identified said he had warned the police about one of the suspects.
7:06 am
we spoke about a particular attack that happened and, like most radicals, he had a justification for anything, for everything and anything. and so that day i realised i need to contact the authorities. the list of those killed and injured reflects the cosmopolitan character of london. christine archibald was 30 and from british columbia in canada. her family said she would have had no understanding of the callous cruelty that caused her death. the french foreign minister said one of his nationals had died and another was missing. 21 people are still in a critical condition. four police officers were injured, two of them seriously. daniel o'neill, who is 23, is recovering in hospital from his injuries. hejust stepped outside the barfor a second, and a man ran up to him and said, "this is for my family, this is for islam" and stuck a knife straight in him. he has a seven inch scar going from his belly
7:07 am
round to his back. it is understood police know the identity of the three attackers but they say they will not release their names until, in their own words, "it is operationally possible" — that may be later today. andy moore, bbc news. we will have more injust we will have more in just a we will have more injust a moment but first let's go to team at king ‘s college hospital, one of those looking after the 21 people still in critical care. tim, can you bring us up critical care. tim, can you bring us 7 critical care. tim, can you bring us up today? yes. we think there are still 36 people being treated in five hospitals across london. royal london, university college, mary ‘s and king ‘s college hospital in south london behind me where it is thought 14 people have been treated. 21 people remain in a critical condition, we believe. this
7:08 am
hospital, and those others are part of what is known as a major trauma network so on saturday night at warhurst plan went into place and tributes have been paid to the medical staff from the head of an age of england. those first responders running towards danger in order to save lives and hospital staff coming in and treating those who so desperately need help. we saw in that report little while ago, elizabeth o'neill, the mother of daniel o'neill, standing pretty much iam now, daniel o'neill, standing pretty much i am now, and talking about the injuries to her son who is being treated in hospital behind me. she says she is in shock and cannot believe what happened. she described the attack is callous and barbaric. a sentiment shared across the and across the world. it tookjust six minutes for ambulances to attend the scene on saturday night and that swift response certainly helped. we -- if swift response certainly helped. we —— if we have any updates on the status of the injured, we will bring
7:09 am
them to you. andy, we hear that there had been a number of raids overnight as well as, i think, in 11 people in custody as it stood. bring us up today? scotland yard have told us up today? scotland yard have told us this morning that there have been two more raids early this morning. they happened at about quarter past fourin they happened at about quarter past four in new and barking. police say a number of people were detained. not arrested. those searches are ongoing. the rings to a total of six now, addresses in east london that have been searched. one other thing to say, police told us about a new physical presence on london bridges and we have seen that go up overnight. for example, over here at westminster bridge where pedestrians we re westminster bridge where pedestrians were killed in march. these are new barriers on the bridges to separate the pavement from the roadway. they look like motorway crash barriers. they have gone up on several of the
7:10 am
london bridges. they will give reassurance to londoners like, having said that, there are many roads in london and elsewhere in the country where vehicles and pedestrians are not separated. thank you for that. worth pointing out as well that we will be speaking to the metropolitan police commissioner, cressida dick, later at this morning so we will get the latest on those raids and the investigation were widely from her when we speak to her a little later on in the programme. for the moment, from here at borough market, that is all. the attack happened just four days before the general election, which will go ahead as planned on thursday. the prime minister insisted that established methods of tackling extremism had to change but she has been criticised over her record on security by both labour and the liberal democrats. our political correspondent chris mason is in westminster — will security dominate the final three days of campaigning? they are. it is inevitable, isn't
7:11 am
it? the second time in this campaign that there was the hitting of the mute button yesterday for most of the major parties for a least a few hours, no national campaigning. the campaigning resumed again last night and will start again this morning. firstly, however, another of those cobra meetings here in whitehall. a depressing regularity, isn't there? to what happens after these terrorist strikes, there are get—togethers of senior politicians and military and intelligence and policing figures to discuss what should happen next in the short term. politically, the remaining days of the campaign are likely to be dominated by national security. the prime minister giving a big speech this morning hoping to flesh out some of the ideas she spoke
7:12 am
about here yesterday. last night, jeremy corbyn the labour leader in a speech in carlisle was quite critical of the government, particularly around police funding in police numbers. theresa may was a former home secretary. the liberal democrats also picking up steam. their leader in an article in the guardian this morning saying that it is time for some awkward and embarrassing questions for british government to ask about the relationships overseas. he wants to see an unpublished report commissioned by david cameron into the sourcing of terrorism funding that has been published. it is thought they could take some awkward questions at saudi arabia which is a major arms customer of the uk. there isa major arms customer of the uk. there is a visitor at downing street who wa nts to is a visitor at downing street who wants to get in... oh, look... larry! he is always here. you do not need a cat flap when you have somebody behind the door the whole time. he has been shut out. thank you. we will speak to you later. we
7:13 am
are speaking to politicians of all this morning, all about the security issues we have been discussing. the first funeral of a victim of the manchester attack will take place on the island of barra in the hebrides eilidh macleod — who was fourteen — went to the concert with her friend, laura macintyre, who remains seriously ill in hospital. businesses on the island will be closed as a mark of respect, and to allow people to attend the service in castlebay. some of the biggest names in music — including coldplay and take that — have taken part in a benefit concert in manchester for the victims of the arena attack. the american pop singer, ariana grande — whose concert was targeted by the suicide bomber — told the crowd she loved the city with all her heart. two million were raised by text and online donations during the event. i love you also much and i think
7:14 am
that the love and unity that you are displaying is the medicine that the world needs right now for so thank you for being just that. i want to thank you for coming. i love you so much. i know so many of you were up late last night watching a concert and we will be speaking to a mother and we will be speaking to a mother and her daughter who were at manchester arena and went to that concert, a difficult decision for them, but they did go last night and we will hear from them later. as we can see, armed police are on the streets of london. there are still cordons. yes. it is interesting seeing manchester. a message of defiance and support for those who know people who have died.
7:15 am
this morning we have bright, blue skies. behind me you can see the shard glistening in the sunshine. borough market is still closed off. the investigation is still ongoing. these are the streets were so many people were fleeing from the three attackers. a little more on the police investigation this morning. we know they have had more raids in connection with the attack in which seven people died on saturday night. we are in a curious situation this morning where the general election campaigning had begun in earnest once again. there was a pause effectively for a day in tribute to those who lost their lives. with me this morning here is emily thornberry, the shadow home secretary. i wanted your thoughts first of all this morning with this right, blue sky over london. london has been through this process before after dreadful events. what happens
7:16 am
next? we are a really strong city thatis next? we are a really strong city that is an example to the world. we are busy and vibrant. there is noise in the background. people are cycling to work. people are getting on with their lives. there is a resilience to london we have shown for decades. we will continue. we will continue to be strong. but it has been a terrible shock. we kind of knew we were vulnerable. we have seen very recently. but it is always a shock and it is always frightening and horrible. like many londoners, i did not get much sleep on saturday night. there is not so much time before people have to vote on thursday. this has been awkward in some respects, that campaigning is back on now. the message labour has in terms of terror which has gone to the top of the agenda, jeremy corbyn
7:17 am
was accusing the reason may of trying to do policing on the cheap. what is the proposal labour as that would be different? this is a multifaceted problem. there is not one thing that will solve this. i think we have to be subtle about this and we need to be intelligent. the truth is, and it is a truth, the police are very stretched. you just need to ask many of the armed police officers on the streets. they come from all over and have had to be brought in. under a time of stress, we are relying on their good will. they were recently helping in manchester and now it is london. it is quite clear we don't have enough armed police officers. and we don't have the same number as we did under ray labour government. we have been cutting back. help me with some of the questions. the tone around these debates is changing. people want specifics. you are saying you need
7:18 am
more armed officers and more police officers. give us some numbers. we sent it out in the manifesto like many other things in relation to the ma nifesto. many other things in relation to the manifesto. we set over the lifetime of the next parliament if we are elected we will introduce another 10,000 officers. and that would not make upfor 10,000 officers. and that would not make up for all of the cutback in police officers, but it would mean every small political area, every ward, would have won community officer. —— one. the question is, can they stop terrorism? in the end, effective policing has to be done with the community, not imposed on the community. people are trying to draw conclusions. it comes down to a stark choice. people are thinking in a different way. which government do we vote for that will keep us safe, that will stop another of these attacks, three in three months in the uk. why should they have the
7:19 am
confidence in a labour government? because i think our approach is one where we fundamentally believe that you need to have a community working with police. only when we work with our police officers, like, for example, there are rumours around in relation to these murderers, just like in relation to the manchester murderers, that alarm bells had been run by the community, and perhaps the lines of communication were not as good as they could be. police officers need to be working with us. people need someone they can trust to speak to. that is one area where we say we need to focus on. but there are a number of other areas. that can be things as wide as we need to look again when we get engaged in international wars and conflicts about what the effects may be on those countries in terms of leaving other government ungoverned spaces, because that is where islamic state can flourish and you can have training camps. we will
7:20 am
look again at the funding in relation to islamic state and the more rigourous about that. and the funding of some of our mosques. we need to look at relationships with rich saudi arabian businesspeople. there is a report being compiled for the last 18 months. theresa may has seen it and we don't know what is happening with it. thank you. right, blue skies. you can hear the noise of london on a monday morning effectively trying to come back to some kind of normality. more on the police investigation, with cressida dick here to give us the latest on the enquiry in the latest on the victims. we will speak to the hospitals were those in critical ca re are hospitals were those in critical care are still being looked after. for the moment, from here, that is it. thank you. bright and blue skies
7:21 am

7:24 am
of the cordon. this is richard angel, caught up in the events. what happened? i was in the middle of durham market. friends and i were having dinner at a beautiful restau ra nt. having dinner at a beautiful restaurant. everyone should go there. we are going back. we were at there. we are going back. we were at the table nearest the door. it became apparent security were saying duck and cover and they were locking the door. a young man puts his foot behind the door and his weight behind the door and his weight behind it, stopping people getting in. everyone turned over tables and duct and looked for any help. you just knew it was something bad happening? it was clear something bad was happening. you look at people's faces. it is obviously a terror attack. there are screams next door. a person for a table. it turned out to be a man who saw
7:25 am
someone stabbing a woman and tried to throw a table to stop them doing what they were doing. he is one of the heroes from saturday night. a few minutes later, someone walking out just next few minutes later, someone walking outjust next door to wear we are holding his throat, his upper body covered, absolutely covered, in blood. he staggers through the market. i hope you found the medical support he needed. ifeel like is one of the people that was lost to us on that evening. they tried to bring order to what was happening in the restaurant to be panicked people wa nted the restaurant to be panicked people wanted to open the fire escape, which i think was a bad idea. there was a pregnant woman who needed a seat and water and more calm than we could have provided... you had to stay in the place for a while? yeah, yeah. we finally found the key and got the door locked. the police swept through quickly. there were gunshots which scared people again.
7:26 am
it happened a second and third time. more gunshots. then everyone went quiet. i was looking on social media to patch together what was happening. most happened on the bridge. but we knew we were in a different place. eventually, after about half an hour of lockdown, they started evacuating the restaurant. the police gave us a head—up we could leave. thank you for coming in down for us today. many stories are merging of real heroism. people going towards danger, helping each other. you must have heard many of those already. there was the guy who kicked us off when he could have run away, the guy who threw his body to close the door, the person who threw something to stop someone being stabbed. and then there was the police officers. i did not mention them. we had to watch out for the
7:27 am
paramedics. they were the eyes and ears. one of the things that dawned on me, and maybe i knew this before, but i saw it, paramedics, they were helping the woman. these people run at the danger. they turned their back on danger. be put together the lives in front of us while we run for our lives. that is remarkable. the trust that they have in the police for having their back. it is second to none. they are everyday heroes. theirfamily... second to none. they are everyday heroes. their family... i second to none. they are everyday heroes. theirfamily... i don't know how they go about their lives knowing they may not come home to them one day. thank you so much for coming here. so many will echo those thoughts. i am glad you are gay. thank you we ——i am glad you are here today. we will have more soon. right now, the news and travel and weather wherever you are this morning. good morning from bbc london news.
7:28 am
i'm alice bhandhukravi. as the working week begins, tens of thousands of commuters will pass through london bridge station, which, as we know, was at the centre of saturday's terror attack. so, let's go straight to the travel situation in the area around borough market. as we can see, borough high street remains closed at the junction with great dover street. london bridge station is now open. access to the underground and mainline trains is via the tooley street entrance only. london bridge itself remains closed southbound. northbound is now open to traffic and pedestrians. there is now access via tooley street. southwark street is still closed eastbound at southwark bridge. more raids have been taking place.
7:29 am
elsewhere, security barriers have been put up along westminster, waterloo, and lambeth bridge is, and scotla nd waterloo, and lambeth bridge is, and scotland yard says unarmed and armed offices will be on patrol in the coming days. yesterday, members of the muslim community of london came out in condemnation of the attack, offering solidarity with victims and families. on the one hand it was our great city that was coming under attack and so many innocent souls were killed, and on the other hand our great religion was attacked as well, i mean, these people tarnished the name of our religion. we just need to show solidarity because this matters to us, this is london, we're londoners. the mayor sadiq khan has announced a vigil will be held this evening near london bridge in honour of the victims of this weekends terror attack. members of the public are invited to potters fields park next to city hall at 6pm to remember the seven people who died, support the injured, and show gratitude to the emergency services.
7:30 am
a minute's silence will also be held at 6.20 this evening. let's have a check on the weather now with kate kinsella. good morning. it's feeling a touch cooler than it has done recently, some cloud around this morning but breaks in the cloud leading to some sunny intervals, the rain not arriving until a little later so on the whole this morning it's dry. showers arriving really as we head towards lunchtime ahead of the main band of rain. cloud increasing from the west and the breeze starts to strengthen. the rain, some heavy persistent rain as we head towards the end of the afternoon. the maximum temperature between 17 and 19. this rain quite heavy for a time but gradually as we head towards the early hours of tomorrow morning it starts to break up a little. stays quite breezy overnight, minimum temperature between 11 and 12. still some showers as we head through tuesday but they will blow through quite quickly on that still quite strong breeze. some dry spells between, we could hear a rumble or two of thunder, the maximum tomorrow around 17 or 18. a brief bit of respite for wednesday. a drier, brighter day with some sunshine ahead of this warm front, overnight wednesday into thursday bringing more rain as we go
7:31 am
to thursday itself. it stays rather unsettled through much of this week. some spells of rain. feeling quite cool for the next couple of days. temperature recovers as we head through thursday as we pick up a south—westerly breeze and then again, a drier day for friday. i'm back with the latest from the bbc london newsroom in half an hour. good morning. the time now is 7:30. we are spending the morning here on the outside of the police cordon in the aftermath of the attack on saturday night in which seven people were killed. you can probably get a sense of the city this morning, bright blue skies above and the shut behind me there. police officers, armed police officers in and around the area. the area immediately around here, borough market, was the scene of harrowing moments of people. we heard from eyewitnesses in a moment
7:32 am
ago and many of those killed and injured were killed in those minutes. late into the night on saturday night. let's bring you a couple of the key developments this morning. police investigating the terror attacks they they know the identities of the three men. details are not to be released because of operational reasons. men and women arrested are still in custody and in terms of the logistics, we know that london bridge itself has reopened this morning and as you can probably hear from the noise around this morning and as you can probably hearfrom the noise around me, many of the streets in the immediate vicinity here are open but, nonetheless, these streets remain closed. it is worth saying as well that the first victim has been officially named as chrissy archibald from canada. she moved to europe to be with her fiance and we are hearing tributes to her from europe to be with her fiance and we are hearing tributes to herfrom her family this morning. we are trying to get some more information on the police enquiry. we can speak now to cressida dick, the commission of the metropolitan police. thank you so
7:33 am
much for your time this morning. i wonder if we could start, we hear many stories and we just heard some from one of the eyewitnesses hear about the bravery of both the public and police officers. you must have heard many of those stories yourself. absolutely i have. this was a terrible and appalling attack and all of our thoughts are with those who have been affected. of course, those who've lost their lives. admits that horror and anger and sorrow is, of course, it is mingled with huge admiration. those of us who were not there are an aura of what both the police officers armed and unarmed officers we heard about and, indeed, the emergency services and, indeed, the emergency services and numbers of the public. extraordinary amount of courage. i have been lucky enough to meet some of the people involved in the last 24 hours and i simply pay tribute to them all. we are hearing one story
7:34 am
in particular, often hard to pick out individuals, but i understand there was a british transport police officer who, maybe you can tell is a little more, he was one of those who was an armed but stood in front of the attackers with just a pattern and was quite severely injured. could you tell a syllable more about that situation? i think my colleague spoke about this yesterday. in fact, we do have a metropolitan police officer, maybe do when you are referring to, who was an armed. i met his family in the middle of saturday night into sunday morning and he was there of duty. he had finished his day at work and he was having a drink with friends in the market and he witnessed the attack and he witnessed members of the public and, indeed, our uniformed officers, being very severely assaulted. my understanding is that without hesitation, wearing his normal clothes, he dived in and
7:35 am
tried to assist. he, i'm afraid, was himself severely injured but utterly heroic. and then members of the public stepped in to try to assist him. they stayed with him and performed first aid on him. and then another plainclothes officer arrived and the members of the public stayed with him and the plainclothes officer as they drove him to the hospital. in the back of a police car. he is in hospital, in a serious condition. but as you say, it is ha rd to condition. but as you say, it is hard to pick out because there are so many stories. we are immensely proud of him and what he did. so many stories. we are immensely proud of him and what he didm terms of the investigation, could you bring us right up today? we understand there have been a number of raids overnight. can we be brought up today with those in the number of people currently in custody? we have been moving quite quickly and you have heard that we believe we know the identities of
7:36 am
these people who carried out this appalling attack. very high priority for us, obviously, is to try to understand whether they were working with anyone else, whether anybody else was involved, in the planning of this at tak. and to find out the background to it. we have made a number of arrests over the last 24 and 36 hours. at the moment i am right in saying we still have 12 people in custody we have carried out searches in a variety of places in east london and we have seized a huge amount of forensic material. we are moving quickly and we are working closely with the intelligence agencies in that work. this morning we were hearing from some security sources in connection with the van that the three men used, that there may have been things that within the van, possibly concrete blocks or some containers
7:37 am
of some kind. can you give us any information on that? i can not comment any more on what we have found. all i will say is that obviously we do have the van, we have a huge amount of other forensic material, both from the scene at borough market and from our searches and seizures we have made. we will be piecing together what happened. for, we hope, potentially trials of individuals and certainly for the coroner. we have been going through the van very carefully. the comments yesterday we heard in connection with the actual use of weapons yesterday by the police officers who shot dead the attackers. it was described as an unprecedented response. there must be enormous pressure on the police and security services right now. could you give usa services right now. could you give us a sense of that? yes. the response was extraordinary. i think
7:38 am
everybody would agree with that. the armed officers, eight minutes from the moment we first received our first call, as i understand it, to the moment when they had neutralised the moment when they had neutralised the threat from these individuals, the threat from these individuals, the three attackers. they were dead. following on from that, clearly there is a huge operation, both to make sure that we can keep people safe at that immediate scene, examine the scene and then roll out proper protection across london for individuals, for events, for a other events. we have thousands of officers engaged now both in the investigation working with collea g u es investigation working with colleagues up and down the country and, secondly, in giving people safe across london. it is a very large scale response. i wonder what reassu ra nces scale response. i wonder what reassurances you could give people after events. of course, in westminster and people are seeing
7:39 am
parallels between what happened there and this attack in london but also, of course, the bomb attack in manchester. what reassurances can you give people about whatever new measures may be in place to keep people safe? this has been a truly ghastly few weeks with the attacks that you have mentioned. that in itself is unprecedented in my working life. that said, we in this country have faced a terrorist threat again throughout my life, actually, that threat changes and morphs and we will change and adapt to what appears to be a kind of new reality for us. we have fantastic people, we have very high levels of skills, we have excellent international relationships and an ability to work with our intelligence agencies here. as you are aware, since 2013 we have foiled, i think,
7:40 am
are aware, since 2013 we have foiled, ithink, 18 are aware, since 2013 we have foiled, i think, 18 plots, are aware, since 2013 we have foiled, ithink, 18 plots, certainly in the high teens. we arrest about one person a day and have been for some time, in relation to counter terrorism. we have very good intelligence and were frequently able to disrupt or indeed provide highly effective protection where we think an event or a place is at risk. i understand people will be concerned and all i can say is that we will be doing everything in our power and we will be stepping up a gear. think you very much for your time, cressida dick. that was the commissioner of the metropolitan police. the most senior police officer in the country. we are spending the morning here near borough market. it is a curious atmosphere because you can hearfrom the noises on the microphone, the streets are busy just the noises on the microphone, the streets are busyjust behind the camera. the street behind us remains closed. you can see armed police officers that because there is still an investigation ongoing. we will
7:41 am
have more here from the scene throughout the morning. thank you very much, charlie. we will return due a little later. go to the other news as well. with just three days until the general election, campaigning has resumed after a brief pause in the immediate aftermath of the london attack. last night, jeremy corbyn accused the prime minister of denying police and the security services the resources they need to deal with the terror threat. theresa may will argue in a speech this morning that she, rather than mr corbyn, is the right leader to protect the country. the first funeral of a victim of the manchester attack will take place on the island of barra in the hebrides eilidh macleod — who was fourteen — went to the concert with her friend, laura macintyre, who remains seriously ill in hospital. businesses on the island will be closed as a mark of respect, and to allow people to attend the service in castlebay. some of the biggest names in music — including coldplay and take that — have taken part in a benefit concert in manchester for the victims of the arena attack. £2 million was raised by text

7:43 am
concert, and were also at the concert last night. they have been talking to us about the decision to go at how difficult that was. sally is he right now with sport. fresh news from the world of rugby. the british and irish lions have named their side for the game against blues in new zealand on wednesday. welsh hooker ken owens will captain the team in the second match of their tour. fellow welshmen rhys webb and dan biggar are at half—back, with the england pair of maro itoje and courtney lawes in the second row. there are eight all blacks in the blues starting 15. andy murray will face karen khachanov later this morning as he looks to join defending champion novak djokovic in the last eight at the french open. the world number two enjoyed a straight sets win over spain's albert ramos—vinolas. india defeated pakistan in the first match of the champions trophy. they we re match of the champions trophy. they were set a target of 289 but fell short. great britain's chris froome is looking to win a record fourth title in cycling's criterium de dauphine
7:44 am
it's the traditional warm—up event for the tour de france, and froome has gone on to win the tour after each of his previous victories. he is looking good at the moment, i can tell you. that is sport. thank you. the prime minister has said things have to change and there is far too much tolerance of extremism in our country. we are joined from westminster. good morning. thank you for joining westminster. good morning. thank you forjoining us. a lot to talk to you about. we heard from the metropolitan police commissioner, cressida dick, talking about large—scale response. cressida dick, talking about la rge—scale response. thousands cressida dick, talking about large—scale response. thousands of officers are involved. they are investing a person a day with regards to counter—terrorism. is the police force stretched? can i start
7:45 am
by paying tribute to everyone involved in helping victims on saturday night? an amazing response. police demonstrated why they are the very best police force in the world. an eight minute response time between the first call from the public to three terrorists being dead is a remarkable thing. we should pay tribute to them. thoughts to all of the victims and those affected. i was in westminster a few weeks ago. i know how dramatic it is for everyone involved. in terms of the police, you heard cressida dick say they have the resources and capability they need. they also have the powers they need because we have been determined as a government to make sure they have the powers they need. we will look carefully at the end of the ongoing investigation to
7:46 am
see what needs to be done if anything at all. you are seeing you may look at funding for example and police numbers? we have been clear we have protected police funding. in 2015 it was the conservatives that protected funding when labour was calling for a 10% cut. we increased funding in cash terms to counter—terrorism policing to make sure there are enough police. the police have done a fantasticjob. crime has fallen by a third. as the prime minister said, the nature of crime is changing. there is more on line crime. police should get a tribute for doing what they have done. we as a government stand ready to back them and give them the powers they need, powers we have consistently voted for, unlike, it has to be said, jeremy corbyn. police numbers have gone down under this government. in 2010, we faced
7:47 am
an unprecedented level of deficit, the largest peacetime deficit ever, and difficult decisions had to be taken. all and difficult decisions had to be ta ken. all parties and difficult decisions had to be taken. all parties at that time agreed there would need to be cuts, there would need to be a efficiency savings. that was agreed by all parties. in 2015, when the labour party were calling for a 10% cut in funding, we protected the budget to make sure that was not the case. we a lwa ys make sure that was not the case. we always stick by the police to make sure they have what they need. it is not just about pure sure they have what they need. it is notjust about pure numbers of police, it is how they are deployed, the training, capabilities, and the powers they need to be and jeremy corbyn over 30 years has voted against every one of those, proudly, against every one of those, proudly, against those powers. on thursday, it isa against those powers. on thursday, it is a clear choice, do we want theresa may in downing street prepared to give the police the powers they need, or do you want jeremy corbyn, whose actions speak he votes against everything that comes forward. the labour party are
7:48 am
talking, though, you will be familiar, about more police officers. another question as well about the reason may. she talked about the reason may. she talked about far too much tolerance of extremism —— theresa may. what does she mean? what will she do about it? she talks about a four—pronged approach. we have to confront the ideology and be clear the rear is one. it is not one that is shared by the vast majority in this country. —— there is one. few people believe it is something that represents islam. it does not represent islam. they believe it does. we also have to look at the internet and we have to look at the internet and we have to look at safe spaces. it has been too easy for too long for internet companies and others to allow safe spaces on the internet where radicalisation can happen. we need to co nfro nt radicalisation can happen. we need to confront that. we need to look at segregation. we cannot have communities in this country com pletely communities in this country completely segregated from each other. we have common values, we
7:49 am
share so much in this country we need to make sure we are working together and living together. and then we have been clear that we will review counter—terrorism and make sure that our strategy, that has worked so well in the past, but is facing unprecedented levels of threat, we just need to put that into context, in the period from the lee rigby murder to the westminster terror attack early in march, we have 13 terror plots foiled. since the westminster attack, three have gotten through, but another five, thatis gotten through, but another five, that is eight in total, eight plots in 70 days is a phenomenal number. that is eight in total, eight plots in 70 days is a phenomenal numberlj am afraid we are running out of time as we do on breakfast because of this news story. karen bradley, thank you. going back to charlie shortly. first, the weather. you can tell us what is going on. we are talking about rain. good morning.
7:50 am
heavy and persistent rain at times. also windy. some seeing gales, especially round the eastern approaches. and it will turn warmer and the changes direction towards the end of the week. at the moment, heavy rain pouring down steadily in the west through the early part of the west through the early part of the day. heavy rain in the north of wales. and more heavy rain in korea and lancashire accompanied by gusty winds. —— cumbria. northern ireland will have showers. some will be heavy and possibly thundery. the thunder is mainly across scotland. out of the showers and in the sunshine, quite pleasant. the same for northern ireland. out of showers, in the sunshine, pleasant. the rain will pour in northern england and wales, spreading through lincolnshire. not quite in to norfolk and suffolk and kent, but you can see the progress it is
7:51 am
making. it is going to be pretty blustery in the south of england. that accommodation means it will be cool that accommodation means it will be cool. through the evening and overnight, again, windy. the wind will change correction and fracker at the direction and strengthen. it will push through scotland. temperatures tonight double figures. not especially cold. it is courtesy of this area of low pressure still with us tomorrow. with this front, more rain in eastern england and scotland. isobars more rain in eastern england and scotland. isoba rs tightly more rain in eastern england and scotland. isobars tightly squeezing together. that means it will be another blustery day with gales across the southern approaches. showers will blow to quite quickly on the wind. fairly frequent. ——
7:52 am
through. scotland and england will have the rain through the day. that continues to push off into the north sea through wednesday. dry and bright weather for sea through wednesday. dry and bright weatherfor a sea through wednesday. dry and bright weather for a little sea through wednesday. dry and bright weatherfor a little bit. then the next system comes from the south—west. look at the change in direction. that is nice to hear. thank you very much indeed. it was an evening of celebration and defiance in manchester last night as 50,000 fans watched an all—star concert to commemorate those who died in the manchester bombing. but it brought back difficult memories for some, brea kfast‘s graham satchell spent the day with a mother and daughter who were at the manchester arena. not quite two weeks after the attack in manchester and not quite 24 hours after the latest outrage in london, 50,000 people came to a concert determined to enjoy themselves. manchester stands together and i think you can see the atmosphere, it's amazing.
7:53 am
no one should feel bad about anything that's happened, it should just be happy. for 13—year—old lucy and her mum anne marie, it's not that simple. you know, this is a fantastic gesture that this concert‘s taken place but i still believe it is too soon. lucy has been having panic attacks through the night, not sleeping, and then when you think you finally are making some progress and moving on, it comes back. what have the last two weeks been like? just stressful and not been happy. lucy and anne marie were at the manchester arena two weeks ago. we filmed with them a day after. i was very terrified and scared. ijust don't understand why they would be so horrible to other people.
7:54 am
just getting to last night's concert after witnessing the horrors of the suicide bomber, an extraordinary achievement. so proud of lucy for agreeing to come today, but i'm very nervous. this is a massive step for all of us today. just before the concert, lucy and her mum released two balloons, their personal way of remembering those who lost their lives two weeks ago. the concert itself saw a remarkable return to manchester for ariana grande. compassion, dignity, courage atjust 23. with her, stars from all over the world likejustin bieber, with the clear message of the night. love, love, love! all: love, love, love! there were heartwarming moments, heartbreaking moments.
7:55 am

weather, wherever you are waking this morning. good morning from bbc london news. i'm alice bhandhukravi. as the working week begins, tens of thousands of commuters are passing through london bridge station which as we know was at the centre of saturday's terror attack. so, let's go straight to the travel situation in the area around borough market. as we can see, borough high street remains closed at the junction with great dover street. london bridge station is now open. access to the underground and mainline trains is via the tooley street entrance only. london bridge itself remains closed southbound. northbound is now open to traffic and pedestrians. southwark street is still closed eastbound at southwark bridge. looking at the rest of the tube network, the overground is part suspended between romford and upminster. police have carried out more raids overnight in connection with saturday's terror attack. officers searched properties in newham and barking and say a number of people have been detained. residents nearby are said to have heard loud bangs and gunshots.
7:57 am
scotland yard said last night's raids were in addition to the seven women and five men aged between 19 and 60 who were arrested under the terrorism act in barking on sunday. elsewhere, security barriers have been put up along westminster, waterloo, and lambeth bridges, and scotland yard says armed and unarmed officers will be on patrol in the coming days. yesterday, members of london's muslim community came out in condemnation of the attack and offered their solidarity with the victims and their families. on the one hand it was our great city that was coming under attack and so many innocent souls were killed, and on the other hand our great religion was attacked as well, i mean, these people tarnished the name of our religion. we just need to show solidarity because this matters to us, this is london, we're londoners. the mayor sadiq khan has announced a vigil will be held this evening in honour of the victims of this weekend's terror attack. it will be at potters fields park, next to city hall, at 6pm. it will also be held at 6.20 this evening. good morning.
7:58 am
it's feeling a touch cooler than it has done recently, some cloud around this morning but breaks in the cloud leading to some sunny intervals, the rain not arriving until a little later so on the whole this morning it's dry. showers arriving really as we head towards lunchtime ahead of the main band of rain. cloud increasing from the west and the breeze starts to strengthen. the rain, some heavy persistent rain as we head towards the end of the afternoon. the maximum temperature between 17 and 19. this rain quite heavy for a time but gradually as we head towards the early hours of tomorrow morning it starts to break up a little. stays quite breezy overnight, minimum temperature between 11 and 12. still some showers as we head through tuesday but they will blow through quite quickly on that still quite strong breeze. some dry spells between, we could hear a rumble or two of thunder, the maximum tomorrow around 17 or 18. a brief bit of respite for wednesday. a drier, brighter day with some sunshine ahead of this warm front, overnight wednesday into thursday bringing more rain as we go to thursday itself.
7:59 am
it stays rather unsettled through much of this week. some spells of rain. feeling quite cool for the next couple of days. temperature recovers as we head through thursday as we pick up a south—westerly breeze and then again, a drier day for friday. i'm back with the latest from the bbc london newsroom in half an hour. bye for now. hello this is breakfast, with charlie stayt at borough market in london — the scene of the third terror attack in the uk in less than three months. police say they they've identified the three men who murdered seven people and left dozens injured in a brutal assault on saturday night. the metropolitan police commissioner tells this programme the threat from terrorist changing. that threat changes, it morphs and we will changes, it morphs and we will change and adapt to what appears to bea change and adapt to what appears to be a new reality for us.

you're displaying is the medicine the world really needs now. good morning. i'm back on the road with the brea kfast va n i'm back on the road with the breakfast van with a couple of days to go until the election. i am talking to business people about what they want to hear from the politicians. welsh hooker ken owens will be british and irish lions captain for their match on wednesday. we have rain crossing scotland. when that moves away for scotland and northern ireland it is sunshine and showers. rain already across part of england and wales will continue to drift eastwards through the course of the day and be accompanied by gusty wind. i will have more details on 15 minutes. we are spending the morning this morning near borough market, in the
8:02 am
wa ke morning near borough market, in the wake of saturday night's attack in which seven people were killed. let's give you a sense of where we are this morning. if you look over my right shoulder, you can see the shard. bright sunshine over london. you can see borough market to my left. these streets are cordoned off as the investigation continues. if you look closer, you can see some flowers that have been laid in tribute to those that have lost their lives and those that have been injured. armed police on the scene. let's bring you up—to—date with the very latest developments. police have said this morning that they know the names of the three attackers, but they don't want to reveal them yet for what they are calling operational reasons. the first of the victims has been named as christine archibald.
8:03 am
she was a canadian who used to work as ease in a homeless shelter before moving to london. counterterrorism officers have detained more people. there were raids in barking and new. six properties have been searched. the latest information is that 11 people are being held in custody following a series of arrests. we have been speaking to eyewitnesses here this morning. many of those involved in the immediate aftermath, some were members of the public that we re some were members of the public that were caught up in events, but also were caught up in events, but also we are hearing more and more stories of police officers, some of whom we re of police officers, some of whom were unarmed, and who came to eat the assistance and tug on the attackers. for around eight minutes, in the streets around me here. we have been speaking to the metropolitan police commissioner cressida dick. she has been talking about some of the police officers and some of those she has been talking to.
8:04 am
my understanding is, without hesitation, wearing his normal clothes, he dived in and tried to assist. he, i'm afraid, was himself severely injured but utterly heroic. and then members of the public stepped in to try to assist him, stayed with him and performed first aid on him. another plainclothes officer arrived and the members of the public stayed with him and the plainclothes officer as they drove him to the hospital in the back of a police car. he is in hospital, he is in a serious condition. as you say, it is hard to pick out, because there are so many stories, but i am immensely proud of him and what he did. that was cressida dick, talking to usa that was cressida dick, talking to us a short time ago, detailing some of the harrowing moments in the immediate aftermath of the attack as
8:05 am
officers and members of the public tried to stop those attackers as they were going around the streets behind me. let's bring you right up to date with the casualties, those people that have been injured. apologies for the noise, you can probably understand there is a lot of police activity still in the area. the roads behind me are closed, but it is very busy in and around the area. let's go to tim muffett at kings college hospital, where some of those are being treated. good morning. it is thought 48 people in total were taken to hospital. overnight, 36 people are still being treated in five hospitals across london. the royal london, st thomas's hospital, university college, st mary's and kings college hospital behind me. 21 people are still in a critical condition. theresa may, the prime minister, visited some of those undergoing treatment. this hospital and the others that i mentioned are all part of a major trauma network,
8:06 am
the well rehearsed plan kicked into place, tales of bravery we just heard about, also from the first responders and medical staff that run responders and medical staff that ru n towards responders and medical staff that run towards danger to help people so in desperate need. if we have any changes to the status of those people, we will bring them to you. as we understand this morning, 21 people remain in a critical condition. thank you very much. we we re condition. thank you very much. we were speaking to cressida dick, the metropolitan police commissioner, a short time ago. we can get more on the ongoing investigation with andy moore at new scotland yard. on the one hand, she was talking about, in the wider sense, a new reality around the terror threat right now. alongside that, there is the ongoing investigation? yes. in connection with the ongoing investigation we have had two more raids early this morning. the metropolitan police say they happened at 4.15 this morning,
8:07 am
two locations in east london, new and barking. they say that a number of people were detained, they have not been formally arrested, and searches are ongoing. the bbc have heard from a number of people that witnessed them. they say there was what appeared to be gunfire, 20 or 30 shots. new barriers have gone up in some of the bridges around london. westminster bridge is very close. that is where the leader —— khalid massoud mowed down pedestrians. they separate the motorway from pedestrians and should give some reassurance to the people of london. we will have more from here. we are in borough market. the streets behind me are closed off. cordons are still in place. we will give you some information on the bridges that are open, and we know
8:08 am
that more security is going to be used on the bridges. good morning. the attack happened just four days before the general election, which will go ahead as planned on thursday. the prime minister insisted that established methods of tackling extremism had to change but she has been attacked on her record on security by both labour and the lib dems. our political correspondent chris mason is in westminster. will security dominate the final three days of campaigning? we have been speaking to politicians this morning and security is really top of the election agenda, isn't it? yes, it is. good morning. extraordinary that, for the second time, in this very short window of campaigning for the general election, that the pause button was pressed again yesterday by most of the major parties before campaigning resumed last night. campaigning will carry on this morning. it is very much liked us through the prism of national security. there will be a
8:09 am
cobra meeting in westminster in the next hour or so. after that, theresa may will give a big speech on the issue of national security and what she thinks she can do if she is re—elected as prime minister. there is criticism from labour and the liberal democrats over her track record as home secretary before she became prime minister, with falling police numbers. the liberal democrats pointed to an unpublished report about the financing of terrorism and suggested the government ought to publish that straightaway, suggesting there is some awkward and embarrassing questions for the government related to connections to saudi arabia. the uk sells a lot of arms to saudi arabia. as i say, the focus is very much on national security and what is the last couple of days of election campaigning. is the last couple of days of election campaigninglj is the last couple of days of election campaigning. i know you will be following it very closely. thank you very much. the first funeral of a victim of the
8:10 am
manchester attack will take place in the outer hebrides. eilidh macleod went to the concert with his sister. businesses on the island will be closed as a mark of respect and to allow people to attend the service. some of the biggest names in music, including coldplay and take that, have taken part in a benefit concert in manchester for the victims of the attack. spirit of unity shone through the pain of recent events and there was even time for the policeman to join in the dancing. ariana grande, whose concert was targeted, praised the city's spirit. i love you guys so much and i think that the kind of love and unity you're displaying is the medicine the world really needs now.
8:11 am
i want to thank you for being just that. i want to thank you for coming. later, we will hear from a mother and daughter that were at the original concert. the really difficult decision to go to the concert last night. we will get a reaction from them. we will get the latest from charlie on this attack in london on saturday night. so many armed police visible on the streets. the cordoned off area is just behind me. let me introduce you to the bishop of southwark, christopher jessup. i don't know where to start, where are your thoughts? we have those days, another london day, the sun is shining, people are going to
8:12 am
work. we have been in this position before after such a dreadful event. where are your thoughts?” before after such a dreadful event. where are your thoughts? i want to begin on saturday, we had a wonderful confirmation in the cathedral, full of young people, as they went to their homes, early evening, the world changed within a few hours. people are coming to work, normality is re—establishing itself is boring. the cathedral is still sealed off, the forensic work is still happening. —— re—establishing itself this morning. the police are doing their amazing work and continuing to serve the community and the nation brilliantly. we are trying to make sense of an appalling act which should not have happened. how does your faith help you? should not have happened. how does yourfaith help you? many should not have happened. how does your faith help you? many people watching this will not have a faith and they are looking to people, it could be politicians, it could be leaders like yourself. what words do
8:13 am
you have to try to make sense of what has happened? to people of faith, it is important that christians are good christians, that muslims are good muslims. the world isa muslims are good muslims. the world is a better place when that happens. that is a challenge to everyone. but there is never any justification that is a challenge to everyone. but there is never anyjustification for hatred that leads to violence. for the wider community, what are the values on which we wish to build our society? they must be aboutjustice, goodwill, caring, sharing love for others. these are the things that bind the human race together and have a particular form for each of the world faiths. thank you very much forjoining us this morning. thank you. i think we can show some of the flowers that i hear are with us this morning. it is a very busy area. ona
8:14 am
us this morning. it is a very busy area. on a monday morning, this place would be very busy. amongst the tributes that are paid to many of those that lost their lives, and we know this morning at 21 people still remain in critical care, 48 people altogether were injured, but people altogether were injured, but people have been coming down here and these have been here since the early hours of this morning. you can see the hashtag. a lot of messages coming through our beloved at this time —— messages of love and this time. with me is farhad ahmed the imam of the ahmadiyya muslim community. what are your thoughts this morning? a lot of people are having questions. many people are asking questions. many people are asking questions is this really what islam teaches? we were here yesterday. we're here today. we want to speak to people and give them the chance to people and give them the chance to speak to people. i am an imam
8:15 am
myself. we want to let people know that islam actually teaches if you kill one person, it is like the killing of the whole of humanity. the scripture is clear that these a cts the scripture is clear that these acts find no justification the scripture is clear that these acts find nojustification in the scripture is clear that these acts find no justification in the teachings of islam. we want to make that clear so unity can be established which is crucial. it's interesting, theresa may made reference to a very difficult conversations and discussions that have to take place and you will be aware too that a lot of people com pletely aware too that a lot of people completely understand the definition of your religion and in how these a cts of your religion and in how these acts are nowhere near, have nothing to do with it, but at the same time they ask questions why someone within that community is able to carry out an act like this and the alerts are not there, that people are not seeing the signs. how do you deal with those issues and going forward , deal with those issues and going forward, how can we make sure it can't or won't happen again? several yea rs
8:16 am
can't or won't happen again? several years ago the head of the islam community said that mosques should be open and should be monitored. all mosques, they are open to be monitored by the state. it's important, some people might think that might be spying, but we feel that might be spying, but we feel that the security of the nation is paramount and it's more important than issues of privacy. mosques should be open. they are open places and if there are any hate preachers that are finding platforms here in the uk and different places even if in universities or online, hate preaching should be curbed because it is misguiding youngsters who are impressionable. thank you for coming down and spending time with us this morning. thank you so much. that's one of the imams here in london from the muslim community. we have bright sunshine here this morning. it is one of those curious mornings, isn't it, where a dreadful event and then you wake up on a monday morning and people are trying to get on with their lives and make some sense of what happened. carol can give us the picture for the
8:17 am
weather across the uk. charlie, you're in beautiful sunshine, but it is not everywhere. as we go through this week, there will be further spells of heavy rain. later as the wind changes direction, you will find it will turn warmer in the second part of the week. this is the amount of rain we have had crossing scotland and northern england, wales, down into the south—west, it has moved away from northern ireland, so nice and bright for you at the moment and ahead of this band of rain, you can see a sheet of cloud and then sunshine. the rain is going to continue to drift towards the east, clearing scotland, moving through england and wales, some of that will be heavy accompanied by gusty winds, but through the afternoon not quite in norfolk, suffolk and essex and kent, but it is not far away and it is coming your way. you can see the rain accompanied by gusting windsmed possibly touching gale force with exposure. it is the same too across
8:18 am
wales. the rain continues heavy and persistent at times. heavy across northern england especially cumbria and lancashire, for northern ireland you're back into sunshine and showers which is a combination you have. in the sunshine, it will feel pleasant. for scotland, it's sunshine and showers. some of the showers heavy and thundery. here is the remnants of this morning's rain. as we come back across the north—east of england, we are back into the rain as well. on and off as we go through the course of the day. through the evening and overnight, you can see the rain does make it into east anglia and also kent. behind it, the wind changes direction, more of a north—westerly. it picks up again and south—western approaches around the bristol channel, gusts to gale force. the rain is still falling across northern england and pushing back in across scotland. temperatures in double figures figures so not a cold night. low pressure has got a good grip on our weather producing more rain across scotland with the weather front, more rain across scotland with the weatherfront, more rain across eastern england. if you look at the
8:19 am
squeeze on the isobars, it will be a gusty day. again we're looking at gales around the south—western approaches, but that will blow the showers that are coming in across northern ireland, england and wales through quite quickly, but they will be frequent showers and some will be heavy and thundery. if you remember we've got the rain asouthern cross scotland. here is the centre of the low pressure that's wrapped around that. then we have got our weather front producing rain also across eastern parts of england. that rain does move away from the north—east during the course of wednesday. there will be a drier interlude with just a few showers, but another salient thing the wind changes direction to this southerly direction. so it will turn warmer from the south. however, in the north, we still have the northerly component so it will be cooler as you push further north. so from wednesday into thursday, we have got our first band of wednesday into thursday, we have got ourfirst band of rain going through and then interests another one coming in behind itand and then interests another one coming in behind it and that one during the course of thursday will
8:20 am

8:25 am
the context. the north-east does very well in terms of the amount of exports to the world, but we see that it doesn't do very well in term of average wages and low types of jobs available and a narrow range. there are big challenges here that we need to think about from a political point of view. first, let's get the news, travel and weather where you are this morning. hello. we have had a taste of summer in recent weeks. it is temporarily on hold. unseasonably wet and windy weather on the way, and rain pushing eastwards. it is just about hear of

northern ireland. a better day here. asimilar northern ireland. a better day here. a similar story across much of scotland, once the rain has cleared eastwards. the band of rain, draped across england, wales, south—west england, slowly pushing eastwards, coupled with strong wind. could get to gale force across the coast. 19205 to gale force across the coast. 1920s celsius, but a cooler 13 or 14 rain. as the rain keeps falling through the rush hour we could find some localised flooding, surface spray, strong wind could bring some disruption. through this evening and overnight, the rain band still pushing eastwards. it starts to push back north into scotland and northern england, but easing across much of england and wales. just a few showers for northern ireland. strong winds and temperatures widely between 11 and 13 celsius. we will stay easily in double figures. tomorrow, we still have an area of low pressure. you can notice the squeeze on the isobars, wind coming from the north west will bring a much cooler appeal. still that rain
