Second Victim Of London Bridge Terror Attack Named

James Ford

The incident came two years after terrorists in a van ploughed into pedestrians on London Bridge before attacking people at random with knives, killing eight people and wounding 48.

"He's trying to hide away from the very poor record of the Conservative Party over the last 10 years with the cuts that they have made and when the cuts are made in these areas these incidences, unfortunately, become more likely to happen".

Challenged again over the length of time the Conservatives have been in government, he said: "Sorry, I've only been in office for 120 days". Asked by Marr about decisions on public spending taken since 2010, Johnson replied: "I'm a new prime minister".

The terrorist group said that Usman Khan, 28, committed the attack on their behalf, although no evidence was offered up. It later emerged that Khan had been wearing a hoax suicide bomb vest after he was over-powered by members of the public before being shot by police gunmen. "I think its ridiculous, I think its repulsive that individuals as unsafe as this man should be allowed out after serving only eight years and that's why we are going to change the law", he also said.

That's also the view of Johnson's main opposition, the Labour Party which noted that his Conservatives have been in power for almost a decade but had chosen not to tighten the laws around terrorism sentencing.

The reality of the case is more complex.

"We argue people should serve the tariff, serve the term, for which they are sentenced".

The Conservative leader vowed that if he reclaims power this month he will end early release for terrorist offences and introduce minimum 14-year sentences, with some convicted never to be released.

Merritt was a course coordinator for the programme, which seeks to "bring together people in criminal justice and higher education institutions to study alongside each other in inclusive and transformative learning communities".

"They are being properly invigilated to make sure there is no threat", Johnson told the BBC. "It's new in our approach and it's new in the way we tackle the issues of public services".

Another card attached to the photo said: "It may have taken us a long time to realise we would get on but once we did I could do nothing but adore you for being the wonderful and wholly special human being that you are".

Mr Gill added: "I think what we saw on Friday was pretty much the best and the worst of mankind".

Questioned about the closure of almost 300 magistrates and crown courts since 2010, he replied: "We of course understand, now is the time to make investments not just in the NHS, not just in policing, not just in education, but in our criminal justice system".

"Of course not, but you don't commit seed money unless you have a convincing case and a rationale for building that hospital, and you're determined to go on and do it", he said.

Police have named the second victim of the London Bridge attack as former University of Cambridge student Saskia Jones.

Johnson said he was "perfectly happy to be interviewed by any interviewer called Andrew from the BBC", but said he had taken part in many interviews in the campaign.

Johnson declined to say whether he would agree to the interview by Neil, an encounter politicians have often found challenging.
