Sadiq Khan has led a vigil of hundreds of Londoners (pictured inset) in remembering those who died following Saturday night's terror attack in the capital. The Mayor of London was joined by senior officers from the Metropolitan 

Police, as well as paramedics and fire crews, for an emotional service in Potters Field Park, near City Hall (shown main). The Archbishop of Canterbury was also on hand to pay his respects to the victims of the attack, in which seven were killed and almost 50 were injured. The evening vigil came after thousands of commuters and workers stopped near the scene of the attack in London Bridge and Borough market to lay flowers and stand in solemn silence earlier in the day.

'London stands in defiance against this cowardly attack and our city and our people and our values and our way of live.
'As the mayor of London I want to send a clear message to the sick and evil extremists who commit this hideous crimes; we will defeat you. You will not win.
'And as a proud and patriotic British Muslim I say this: you do not commit these disgusting acts in my name. Your perverse ideology has nothing to do with the true values of Islam and you will never succeed is dividing our city.
