London Bridge killer Usman Khan paid $1,300 on slimming treatments just days before his deadly terror attack - and was dubbed "Beyoncé Boy" because of his forbidden love for the diva, it was claimed Wednesday.

They also expressed their condolences to the two victims who died and those who were injured in the violence on Friday.

He said: "The best way to defeat this hatred is not by turning on one another, but it's by focussing on the values that bind us, to take hope from the heroism of ordinary Londoners and our emergency services who ran towards danger, risking their lives to help people they didn't even know".

'We have to face the grim reality that in some cases it is really very hard, ' he said.

Khan killed Jack Merritt, 25, and Saskia Jones, 23, and injured three others before he was tackled by onlookers and finally shot dead by cops.

Both Ms Jones and Mr Merritt had been at the Fishmongers' Hall event when they were stabbed, the hearing was told.

'He would possibly per chance well be seething at his loss of life, and his lifestyles, being at risk of perpetuate an agenda of despise that he gave his all the pieces combating against.

Mr Merritt, from Cottenham, near Cambridge, was a co-ordinator for Learning Together, a programme associated with Cambridge University's Institute of Criminology.

Miss Jones, a volunteer on the programme from Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, was described as having "great passion" for providing support to victims of crime by her family.

In a statement issued by London's Metropolitan Police, the man identified only as Lukasz said he had gone to work as normal at Fishmongers Hall "when the unimaginable and tragic terrorist attack happened".

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has sought to blame Labour for the early release of the convicted terrorist as the political row over the knife attack intensified.

Khan, who was living in Stafford, Staffordshire, was given permission to travel into the heart of London by police and the probation service.

If Khan hadn't been stopped on London Bridge by others attending the conference, he would have killed others.

Usman Khan fatally stabbed two people, before being shot dead by police.
