“Searches are continuing at a number of addresses in Barking,” the police said in a statement.
A Reuters photographer was able to see the police bringing out four women, covered face, from a block of buildings where the police carried out an operation in the morning.
Strong police presence
London police chief Cressida Dick confirms that the three assailants were shot dead. Their identity is not known at this time. Mrs. Dick pointed out that the reaction of the security forces to the attack had been particularly rapid and that everything had ended in eight minutes.
Dozens of heavily armed policemen were called in to patrol the area of attacks and know exactly what happened on the London Bridge and the Borough Market area.
The public can expect to see more policemen in the capital over the next few days. We have reviewed our plans for future public events.

Interior Minister Amber Rudd said the level of alert would be kept “serious” since according to the police, no attacker would have taken off.
