Police shot dead the three attackers some eight minutes after they began their onslaught and have since arrested a number of people in raids on Barking, East Ham and Dagenham.

Ahead of the minute’s silence, the government said: ‘The silence will be marked at all government buildings and other organisations may follow suit.

‘Flags will remain at half-mast on Whitehall government buildings until Tuesday evening.’

Yesterday, London Mayor Sadiq Khan invited Londoners to a vigil at Potter’s Field Park yesterday to remember the victims.

The attack came less than two weeks after a suicide bomber killed 22 children and adults outside an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.

In March, a similar attack in Westminster saw five people died.

Defiant Londoners have paid tribute to the victims of the London Bridge terror attack – and insisted there was no alternative but to ‘keep going’.

A mound of hundreds of bunches of flowers have been left at a makeshift memorial, opposite the Barrowboy and Banker pub where the van ran down pedestrians on London Bridge.

One sign simply stated: ‘Terrorism has no religion’ while another read ‘Shaken but strong….and so so sorry that this happened in my city, my home – a Londoner.’
