London attack: Police arrest 19-year-old man

The belts, created to look like real explosives, consisted of three disposable water bottles covered in masking tape that were then attached to the belt.

British police and security services were criticised after it emerged that they had known about Butt, who featured in a TV documentary entitled "Jihadis Next Door", in which he joined a group unfurling an Islamic State (IS) flag in a park.

Mr Haydon said it was hard to speculate to what end the attackers wore the belts, although it may have been to take hostages or as a defensive strategy.

Haydon also theorized the attackers may have seen the belts as a protection from being shot by police.

A 19-year-old man was held on suspicion of preparing terrorist acts following a raid at an address in Barking, east London, at 9.50pm on Sunday, Scotland Yard said.

Detectives suspect the carnage inflicted could have been even worse if the ringleader of the terror gang had not failed to secure the vehicle because his payment did not go through.

The images of the three belts have been released to the public this morning.

I spoke with the 200 frightened people and told them that there were armed officers outside, we were safe and we would evacuate them as soon as we could and I got a big round of applause.

The three Islamists who killed eight people after driving a van into pedestrians on London Bridge and then attacking nearby revellers had initially tried to hire a 7.5 tonne truck, the head of the United Kingdom capital's counter-terrorism unit said on Friday (9). According to police, they look very authentic.

People have been urged to show the world their "resilience, unity and defiance" a week on from the London Bridge terror attack by enjoying their Saturday night in the capital.

A week after the atrocity, people returned to the Borough Market area on Saturday night - but the market is expected to stay closed for a few more days as police continue their investigation.

"One possibility is Butt had considered targeting the tennis tournament", but chose to speed up the plot, UK Police said. They were able to kill eight people and injure approximately 48 others before being shot dead by police.

Twelve people arrested in the initial stages were released without charge.
