British police on Wednesday said a 30-year-old man had been arrested as part of an investigation into the weekend London Bridge terror attack which left seven people dead and 48 injured.

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 force said formal identification has not yet taken place, but Xavier Thomas's next of kin had been informed.

Delcros was seriously injured when she was struck by the van.

If confirmed, Thomas would be the eighth person killed in the vehicle and knife attack.

People near the scene of the recent attack observe a minute's silence in tribute to the victims of the attack at London Bridge and Borough Market, in central London, Britain June 6, 2017.

Redouane, a Moroccan pastry chef who had married a British woman and lived in Ireland for some time, was the only one of the three attackers who had not come onto British security's radar. After a period living together in Morocco, Zaghba's parents separated and the mother returned to Italy.

Zaghba, Pakistan-born British citizen Khuram Shazad Butt, 27, and Rachid Redouane, 30, who claimed to be Moroccan-Libyan, launched a murderous rampage around London Bridge and Borough Market on Saturday night.

In March 2016, during a visit to Italy, Zaghba was stopped at Bologna airport with a one-way ticket to Turkey by police who suspected he was headed for Syria.

The visible police presence remains, however - as does the memory of the attack in the minds of British voters, just one day before the country undertakes its national elections.

Thomas, a French tourist to Britain, was found on Tuesday night in the water near Limehouse, East London by the Metropolitan Police, a spokesman for the police said Wednesday.

When he was stopped and questioned, he reportedly told police officers: "I'm going to be a terrorist".

Staff reported the Islamic extremist to the police when a scuffle broke out between the pair and others - only to be told Butt "was already known to intelligence".

The authorities have said Butt was known to police and the domestic security service MI5 but there was no intelligence that an attack was being planned.

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.

Butt had appeared in a Channel 4 documentary The Jihadis Next Door, broadcast previous year.

On Wednesday, NHS England said 29 patients remain in London hospitals, with 10 in a critical condition.
