Britain to remain at risk of Islamist terror attacks ‘for at least two years’

The Dean of Southwark, the Very Reverend Andrew Nunn, read the names of those killed in the attack.

He praised the "dedication" of the emergency services and prayed for their "continued safety and protection", adding: "Love is stronger than hate, light is stronger than darkness and life is stronger than death.

"It was true a year ago. It is as true today."

Later, the words #LondonUnited will be projected onto the bridge and a digital book of hope will be available at Southwark Cathedral throughout the weekend for the public to sign.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan also gave a reading from Psalm 77, and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn attended with Diane Abbott.

A national minute’s silence will be held at 4.30pm.

Before the service, Prime Minister Theresa May said: "Today we remember those who died and the many more who were injured, and pay tribute to the bravery of our emergency services and those who intervened.

"The many stories of courage demonstrated that night will always stay with me."
