After the revelation that two of the London Bridge terror attackers came from Barking, the Met have revealed that the third man shot dead by police was also from east London.

Khuram Shazad Butt, 27, and Rachid Redouane, 30, and 22-year-old Youssef Zaghba used a van to mow down pedestrians on London Bridge before getting out and slashing at Saturday night revellers in Borough Market.

The sick trio killed seven people before police gunned them down eight minutes after the first 999 call.

Butt and Redouane were both from Barking whilst police are not releasing specific details about where in east London Zaghba lived.

He is believed to be an Italian national of Moroccan descent, and was not a police or MI5 subject of interest.
