It didn't take long for police to come around and say they're treating this as if it's terrorism. Yeah they don't comply played their cards close to the best when anything like this happened so speculative vehicle. Because the remote at the humane thing you could be a heart attack or stroke something like that behind the wheel. But certainly you know having covered these now for a a few different circuits here here and open Manchester that kind of looks like it did more than likely years and yes it didn't take long to the police say we're treating this as a terrorist incident.

People have been radicalized it will Islamic group people they've radicalized in the London Bridget capped now we apparently have.

Eyewitnesses said the thought possibly two maybe three individual got out of at the time in the police now hours later had discounted that they're saying the other certainly checking up that possible leap they say they felt absolutely nothing. Every crowd in the in the past whenever there's very few incidents gunshot counts have been off.

I know it's really as soon in the aftermath of this attack but given this that the lawn debris to attack other things we've seen across Europe. Is there talk now about how to prevent. These attacks dumb by somebody behind the wheel of whether it's a truck or just some other sort of vehicle may be large barriers on the streets is.

Greater London area has to go to the suburbs you talker twelve million people. And that means you know millions upon millions of cars. That's the way it is you're not gonna change a whole lot. If somebody is determined that certain mindset. Is gonna happen. Our Intel we're learning too that the death hole in last week's terrible high rise fire has risen are you aware of that.

He said the current number of people don't we'll die or those missing and presumed dead. Is now setting its 79. And he says that numbers. Clearly blew woody says that may well lie is of course they're dealing with. People that weren't known at least relative strength they were known to have relatives in the building.
