Zaghba was "not a police or MI5 subject of interest", it added, an assertion that seemed to conflict with accounts in the Italian media.

Ismail Abedi, 23, was arrested in Chorlton on May 23, a day after the terror attack on Manchester Arena which killed 22 people, including seven children.

The Italian intelligence had apparently flagged up to its British counterparts worries about the third attacker, the Moroccan-Italian Youssef Zaghba.

Butt was previously known to police and domestic spy agency, MI5 and was a British citizen who had been born in Pakistan, the police said.

He was detained carrying only a small backpack, his passport and a one-way ticket to Istanbul.

"He never let anyone influence him before, neither in Italy nor in Morocco, where he studied computer science at the University of Fez", she said in an exclusive interview with Espresso magazine.

London Bridge attacker Butt then speaks to the camera.

Zaghba was stopped past year by Italian authorities at the Bologna airport because he appeared "agitated", at which point, having no luggage on his one-way flight to Istanbul, he told authorities that he was "going to be a terrorist," Politico reports.

The gym is just a street away from Wingate Road, where late on Wednesday armed police raided a house and arrested a 29-year-old man in connection with the London Bridge terror investigation.

A total of 19 people have been arrested in Britain as part of the terror probe, 12 of whom have been released without charge.

British police have confirmed the identity of two of the three attackers but had been retaining the name of the third while investigations into possible accomplices and contacts continued.

Reaction to the attack has dominated the final days of campaigning before Thursday's general election in Britain.

Sources in Islamabad said that no arrest was made but the place was thoroughly searched by police officials, Counter- Terrorism Department and intelligence agencies.

Both the relatives of Khuram Butt and the ex-partner of Rachid Redouane distanced themselves from the extremists, saying the atrocity had left them shocked.

They return and Redouane retrieves his phone while grinning, as the jihadis then hug one another.

The Jabir Bin Zayid Islamic Centre, where Butt occasionally worshipped, said that "some years ago after interrupting a Friday sermon he was asked to leave the mosque".

Mr Khan's cousin, Ms Rehman, was pregnant when Butt was discussing travelling to Syria, Mr Khan said, and his family wanted to stop him going.

Due to her cuts to the police force, some are even calling for Prime Minister Theresa May's resignation. A string of opinion polls over the past couple of weeks have pointed to a narrowing in the gap between her Conservative Party and the main opposition Labour Party.

He also pledged to hire more police officers, following a drop in 20,000 officers between 2009 and 2016, or around 14 percent, according to the independent Institute for Fiscal Studies think-tank.

Much of the area around London Bridge remained cordoned off as commuters struggled to work in the driving rain.

The area around Borough Market is not expected to reopen Tuesday.

Transport for London, which oversees the capital's transport network, has advised commuters to make alternative journeys as the station will be busy.

Police killed all three attackers.
