Police Announce New Arrest Linked to London Bridge Attack

British police searching for a French man missing since the London Bridge attack say they have recovered a body from the River Thames.

When she saw the news about the attacks in London on Saturday night, she tried to call him and became anxious when she couldn't reach him.

The body was recovered near Limehouse, downstream of London Bridge, at around 7.45pm on Tuesday by specialist officers from the marine police unit. The force said formal identification has not yet taken place, but Xavier Thomas's next of kin had been informed. Thomas' girlfriend was also struck and seriously injured by the van.

Mr Thomas had been missing since he was caught up in the attack with Ms Delcros.

Eight people were killed and dozens more were injured in the attack, which began shortly before 22:00 BST.

Ilford, which is near Barking, has become the focus of the inquiry after it emerged that terrorists Khuram Butt and Youssef Zaghba had links to the area and there have been a series of raids in the wake of the attack.

Italian authorities said Zaghba had been stopped and questioned in Italy but had not been charged with any crime.

Citing intelligence sources, Italian dailies Corriere della Sera and La Repubblica said Zaghba was met at the Bologna airport by Italian intelligence agents each time he arrived in Italy to visit his mother after his initial run-in with Bologna airport authorities on March 15, 2016.

In a statement, the Metropolitan Police said forensic officers examining the white rental van found "13 wine bottles with rags wrapped around them and believed to be filled with a flammable liquid", as well as two blowtorches.

Police have said Redouane was not known to security services.

The disclosures mean perpetrators in all three of the terrorist outrages to hit Britain this year had at some point appeared on the radar of security agencies.

Police also confirmed there was a call about him to an anti-terrorism hotline, but no evidence was given that he was planning an attack.

Dar blasted his 27-year-old nephew, Khuram Butt, over his involvement in the sickening terror attack and said he could not understand why he slaughtered seven innocent people.

As the fallout from the atrocity continued, all eight people killed in the massacre were identified, while a further 10 victims remain in a critical condition.

It has been revealed that Butt appeared in the Channel 4 documentary, The Jihadis Next Door past year.

The shadow Brexit secretary and former director of public prosecutions told ITV1's Good Morning Britain that Labour backed last year's Investigatory Powers Act on powers for the security and intelligence services, with a three-line whip requiring all the party's MPs to support it.
