Just minutes before Saturday's terror attack in London, pubs were crammed with revellers enjoying a balmy night out in a trendy part of the city, many of them watching the Champions League final on big screens.

And then terror struck yet again at London's heart as a van smashed into pedestrians before its occupants went on a stabbing rampage, bringing bloodshed to the streets of the British capital.

Within minutes, six people had been killed and three attackers shot dead by armed police. Over 40 others were wounded.
