Minutes later Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley suggested there may have been more than one person involved stating that police were 'chasing down suspects'.

Police identified the suspected terrorist using CCTV but the investigation has been overshadowed by an extraordinary diplomatic row triggered by Donald Trump

The US President tweeted just hours after the rush hour blast that police had the attacker 'in their sights' and should have been 'more proactive' in catching 'the loser'.

Scotland Yard hit back and said Mr Trump's comments were 'pure speculation' while senior officers refused to name the suspect.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attack tonight, saying its 'soldiers' had 'planted IEDs'.
