Floral tributes for victims of the terrorist attack, including Jack Merritt, left on London Bridge in central London, after a terrorist wearing a fake suicide vest who went on a knife rampage killing two people, was shot dead by police on Friday.

The woman killed in the London Bridge terrorist attack was a former student at Cambridge University, her deputy chancellor said.

The woman, who has not yet been identified, was one of two people who died in Friday's attack by convicted terrorist Usman Khan.

Cambridge University graduate Jack Merritt was named on Saturday when the other victim was killed when tributes came to the 25-year-old.

Professor Stephen J Toope, the university's vice chancellor, said he was "sad beyond words" to confirm the deaths and revealed that a staff member was also among the three people injured in the stabbing wave.

He said, "Our university condemns this abominable and senseless act of terror. Our condolences, our thoughts and our deepest sympathies are with the victims and their families."

One of the three people injured in the attack was allowed to return home, while the other two remain in stable condition at the hospital, said the NHS medical director in London.

Merritt was the course coordinator at Learning Together, which hosted a prisoner rehabilitation conference attended by Khan at Fishmongers' Hall, near London Bridge, before his death turmoil.

Toope said the Learning Together event should have been a "joyous opportunity to celebrate the achievements of this unique and socially transformative program" but was "interrupted by an unspeakable criminal act."

A line of policemen was seen on their hands and knees searching their fingertips on the London Bridge on Sunday, which remained closed with vehicles and buses still trapped.

Khan was using an electronic tag when he launched his attack after he was released in the middle of a 16-year prison sentence last December over a plot to bomb the London Stock Exchange.

He was approached by several members of the public – including former offenders and an off-duty police officer – before being shot dead by police on London Bridge.

The 28-year-old student and personal friend of Islamic extremist Anjem Choudary was allowed to travel to central London on Friday by police and parole service.

He had also been allowed to travel to Whitehall earlier this year.

Police searched for a three-story building on Wolverhampton Road in Stafford, where Khan was believed to be staying, and another property in Stoke-on-Trent, where he was also.

The attack prompted the Justice Ministry to review the license conditions of all convicted terrorists released from prison, which Prime Minister Boris Johnson says are "probably about 74" people.

Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn told Sky's Sophy Ridge that there were lessons to be learned from the incident and that there should be a "full investigation" of the circumstances surrounding the offender's jail sentence and subsequent release.

The Islamic State terrorist group said one of its fighters carried out the attack but provided no evidence.

No one else is being sought because of the attack.
