Minute's silence for London Bridge terror attack victims



Sadiq Khan and Theresa May were among the hundreds who gathered for a first anniversary memorial service to honour those killed in the London Bridge attack.
 
Politicians, emergency service workers and bereaved relatives filled out Southwark Cathedral on Sunday afternoon, with several emotional speeches heard before families of the victims were invited to light candles behind the altar.
 
 
An olive tree - to be known as the Tree of Healing - was planted in the cathedral grounds using compost from floral tributes left on the bridge in the aftermath of the murders last year.
