Sky News reports that after the terrorists were shot dead by the police on London Bridge, they opened the van and discovered more than a dozen Molotov cocktails inside.

HAVE said that the three men who carried out last week's terror attack had attempted to hire a seven-and-a-half tonne lorry to use, but were unable to do so.

The killers' ringleader Butt tried to hire a much bigger 7.5-ton lorry, but his card was declined.

The bloodthirsty terrorist gang that killed eight people and injured almost 59 more near London Bridge slashed their victims with bright pink ceramic kitchen knives.

The bloodthirsty gang was also shot dead before they could make their way back to the van where their petrol bombs were stored.

They found a number of office chairs and a suitcase, and believe that the attackers had told family they were using the van to move as a cover story.

Butt, 27, and his two accomplices, Rachid Redouane, 30, who claimed to be Moroccan-Libyan, and Youssef Zaghba, a 22-year-old Italian national of Moroccan descent, all died in the attack.

They stabbed five people who had been enjoying the area's pubs and restaurants.

The massive police probe into the attack continues and by today, 20 arrests have been made and 13 buildings searched.

Commander Dean Haydon, head of the Metropolitan Police's counterterrorism unit, said early Saturday that authorities want to know more about the unusual knives.

Police said the men tied 12in (30cm) pink ceramic knives to their wrists and had petrol bombs in the van.

'I told them that we had armed officers outside, everyone was safe and there was a nice big round of applause and cheering - that was really good'. The man, known to authorities for possible terrorist radicalisation, was allegedly acting suspiciously.

British police announced the arrest of 28-year-old man on investigation of the terrorist attack on London bridge.

"Where have they come from?"

The trio were wearing hoax suicide belts made of plastic water bottles wrapped in grey duct tape.

After leaving the vehicle, the terrorists used 12in ceramic knives with pink blades in a stabbing spree.

He said: "There were three identical knives - each attacker had one of those in their hand, wrapped with some kind of leather binding".

"Many witnesses we've spoken to have provided extremely helpful accounts of the attack", Haydon added, "but we are still missing pieces of the picture".

Ms Dick said the threat to London and the United Kingdom is one many other countries are facing and remained defiant when asked about the future. "We will be looking at intelligence and our processes, and asking ourselves the question: 'Could we have prevented such an attack?'", Haydon said.

The market itself remains closed because of the police investigation.

"I agree with the Prime Minister [Theresa May] when she said that we do need to review across the board how we are tackling terrorism, in terms of our powers, in terms of how we are working with our communities and what is happening in our communities, in terms of the internet, in terms of our equipment, in terms of our computers and so forth".
