The belts, created to look like real explosives, consisted of three disposable water bottles covered in masking tape that were then attached to the belt.

The kitchen knives, each measuring 30cm, were branded Ernesto with duct tape wrapped around the handles and in the case of the ringleader, Khuram Butt, 27, a leather strap had been attached to the handle and was hung around his wrist.

The Metropolitan Police says that security has been reviewed on London's 33 bridges and the use of barriers and other measures are being considered at other locations across the capital.

The Post has contacted residents who used the centre and they said that Butt did not attempt to share his beliefs in front of them.

Mr Haydon said it was hard to speculate to what end the attackers wore the belts, although it may have been to take hostages or as a defensive strategy.

Haydon also theorized the attackers may have seen the belts as a protection from being shot by police.

Eight people were killed when three terrorists drove at pedestrians on London Bridge earlier this month and stabbed people in Borough Market.

A police officer has explained how he helped hundreds of people hide in a pub basement during the London Bridge terror attacks, potentially saving many lives.

Police released an image of the knife used in the attack.

"In terms of our witnesses that we've spoken to so far, out of the 300 odd people, there are about 20 different countries of origin".

Inside the van, police found two blowtorches as well as what appeared to be 13 Molotov cocktails made from wine bottles and a possible flammable liquid.

Cdr Haydon praised the courage of police and bystanders who tackled the killers, despite the apparent danger of the "explosives".

Met Police commissioner Cressida Dick said she needed Londoners to be "really alert".

Detectives have arrested 19 people, six of which remain in custody.

Police shot the attackers dead just eight minutes after the first call from the public.

"Obviously we will be reviewing, for example, the number of armed officers we have and how they work, and a whole host of other things that are likely, from my point of view, to take more resources, and I will be asking for them". The intended truck was smaller but similar to the one used in the Nice attack a year ago that killed 86 people and injured hundreds in the resort town in the south of France.
