London’s police counterterrorism chief says the public should expect to see increased security measures as authorities investigate the latest attack to strike Britain.
Assistant Police Commissioner Mark Rowley said Sunday that police need to establish whether others were involved in planning Saturday night’s vehicle and knife attack on London Bridge and at nearby restaurants.
Seven people were killed in the attack and 21 are in critical condition.
Rowley says police are confident that the three men fatally shot by officers in the minutes after the assault were the only attackers, but there is “clearly more to do” in the investigation.
He says the white van they used to mow down pedestrians on London Bridge was rented by one of the men.
Security cordons will remain around London Bridge indefinitely.
