The UK’s determination to overcome the threat of terrorism “has never been stronger”, says Theresa May as the London Bridge attack marks its first year remembrance. 

Last year eighth people was stabbed to death in Borough market when three men drove into pedestrians on London Bridge. A service remembering the victims will be held at Southwark Cathedral later – one of a number of events taking place to mark the anniversary of the attack.

There will also be a national minute’s silence to commemorate the victims.

The service at Southwark Cathedral will honour the emergency services’ response to last year’s attack on 3 June, as well as remembering the eight people who died and the 48 who were injured.

Among those invited to the private service at Southwark Cathedral are the Politicians who have been invited to the 15:00 BST service, along with relatives of the victims, who will light candles during the ceremony.

There will be a short procession afterwards from the cathedral to Southwark Needle, at the corner of London Bridge, which will end with the national minute’s silence at 16:30 BST.

The hashtag #LondonUnited was projected onto London Bridge on Saturday night and will be done so again on Sunday.
