Police confirm higher death toll in London attack

Police have confirmed the death toll in yesterday’s terror attacks in London now exceeds 50 and could reach more than 100. Though not confirmed the death toll on the bus has been said to be near to double figures with at least 30 injured. On BBC LDN, the BBC radio station in London, John Gaunt received an email questioning ‘a report in which a suicide bomber had been shot near Canary Wharf’, and why the police ‘had not said anything’. John Gaunt said that the police had disputed these rumours, and that no-one had been shot nor detained.

Tributes have poured in from leaders around the world. Prince Charles visited St Mary’s hospital today and spoke of the ‘resilience’ which the British people displayed.
