London attacker was on EU-wide watch list

The third London attacker has been named as Youssef Zaghba, a 22-year-old Moroccan-Italian. And it transpires he was able to enter the UK, despite being placed on an EU-wide watch list after being stopped at Bologna Airport, in Italy, in 2016. Officers there found materials related to so-called Islamic State on his mobile phone.

So, shouldn't being on a system sharing details of potential suspects have automatically alerted the UK authorities? "One unconfirmed report suggests that did happen - apparently when Zaghba arrived at Stansted Airport in January - but that border staff still let him in." says BBC home affairs correspondent Danny Shaw. The Home Office hasn't yet commented,

So far, four of the seven people killed in Saturday's attack have been named. The family of 28-year-old Australian nurse Kirsty Boden called her "outgoing, kind and generous". A French national who died is understood to have been Alexandre Pigeard, 27.

May calls for tougher anti-terror measures

It's the last day of campaigning before the general election, and Prime Minister Theresa May has said she will change human rights laws if they "get in the way" of anti-terror work. But Labour said this was "not the message that we should be sending" and the Liberal Democrats accused the PM of starting a "nuclear arms race" in terror laws. Meanwhile, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn says there are "24 hours to save the NHS" and Mrs May is promising Brexit will lead to more jobs and homes and better transport links.

Labour has immediately cried foul, claiming another manifesto U-turn, at almost the last minute of the campaign. Tory sources deny that flatly, saying they would not pull out of the European Convention on Human Rights but instead, seek fresh derogations - essentially legal opt-outs.

Uber sacks 20 staff after harassment claims

The taxi-app firm Uber has fired 20 staff and is taking action against others, as it investigates allegations of sexual harassment, bullying and other issues about poor company culture. The whole inquiry follows a former employee writing a scathing blog post about her experiences.

What the papers say

Several newspapers feature a photograph of the third London attacker, Youssef Zaghba, on their front pages. The Times leads on the revelation that MI5 was made aware he had been arrested last year on his way to Syria, while the Mirror says there's "fury" that he was able to enter the UK. The Guardian and Metro lead on Theresa May's comments on anti-terror laws.
