London attack victim Chrissy Archibald remembered for good deeds


Her opponent, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who has surprised many by rising in the polls, said May should resign over her cuts to police funding and accused her of trying to keep the United Kingdom safe "on the cheap". Trump said in a Tweet.

"I am so sick of Theresa May blaming others for terror when the system she presided over has obviously failed so lamentably", Hilton thundered.

But she said Britain was under threat from a new breed of crude copycat militants who might not have spent years plotting or even been radicalised online.

May said the series of attacks were not connected in terms of planning and execution, but were inspired by what she called a "single, evil ideology of Islamist extremism" that represented a perversion of Islam and of the truth.

Richard Barrett, former global counter-terrorism chief at MI6, responding to her comments in a column saying that May had overseen the development of the Prevent counter-terrorism strategy, yet the terrorist threat "is indisputably greater now than it was in 2001".

Police in London have named two of the three suspects in the van and knife attack near London Bridge that left seven people dead.

Authorities warned after the bombing that a further attack could be imminent, and police said their efforts to find out if the bomber had accomplices could be compromised.

Given the speed with which the attack was ended, it wasn't clear whether having more police on the beat would have prevented it, but questions persisted over whether investigators had the resources to look into such complaints and whether crucial opportunities were missed that could have saved lives.

"While our pain will never diminish, it is important for us all to carry on with our lives in direct opposition to those who wish to destroy us and remember that hatred is the refuge of small-minded individuals and will only breed more", she said.

WATCH: Christine Archibald has been identified as the Canadian killed in Saturday's terror attack in London. "We grieve the loss of our handsome, loving daughter and sister".

The statement adds: "She had room in her heart for everyone and believed strongly that every person was to be valued and respected". She lived this belief, working in a shelter [Alpha House] for the homeless until she moved to Europe to be with her fiance.

Her family asked that people honour her memory by helping in their community. "Tell them Chrissy sent you".

Earlier Monday, London City Hall said it had installed security barriers overnight on three prominent London bridges-Waterloo, Lambeth and Westminster-with the aim of stopping any cars from mounting the sidewalk and driving intentionally into pedestrians.

As police unleashed a hail of 50 bullets at terrorists during Saturday night's London Bridge attack, an American bystander was reportedly struck in the head. He used two different birthdates that would make him either 25 or 30, authorities said. Officers searching for the attackers went through bars and restaurants as staff and customers hid.
