London terror attack: Met Chief calls attack ‘appalling and ghastly’ | London

I can’t tell you anything about the identity of the suspects at the moment.

Obviously a very high priority for us is to identify them, work out who they are, where they’ve came from, what is behind this.
I’m not prepared to comment at all about any information that we currently have. You understand why.

We’ve been trying to prepare for an attack like this. We have an excellent working relationship with our colleagues in the agencies, and we have officers on the streets of London all the time.

These sorts of things, as you know, as is quite apparent, are hard to predict, and are sometimes sadly, as has been proven over the last few weeks, hard to prevent.
We’re clearly going to have to look, all of us, in the light of the Westminster attack and the events in Manchester, at our resource levels and how we use them.
But that’s just a natural thing to do. I believe the Metropolitan Police is well resourced.
