UK remembers London Bridge victims

Britain will have a minute's silence to commemorate the victims of the London Bridge attack

Prime Minister Theresa May says Britain's resolve to "stand firm" against terrorism is stronger than ever, as the country marks a year since a deadly vehicle-and-knife attack on London Bridge.

Eight people were killed and almost 50 injured when three attackers ran down pedestrians on the bridge, then stabbed people in nearby Borough Market on a spring evening. It came two weeks after a bombing at a concert in Manchester Arena killed 22 people.

Survivors, politicians and emergency workers are attending a service on Sunday at Southwark Cathedral near London Bridge. The nation will hold a minute of silence at 4.30pm (Monday AEST).

May paid tribute to the bravery of first responders and others, including Ignacio Echeverria, a Spanish man who tackled attackers with his skateboard and died in the attack.

As the UK commemorates the victims of the terror attack, these are the people who lost their lives in the murderous rampage.
