As a part of the tribute, candles will be lit by victims' relatives before an olive tree, called the Tree of Healing, is planted in the cathedral grounds using compost from flowers left on the bridge after the murders.

Almost 50 people were injured when three Islamic State group-inspired attackers first deliberately drove a vehicle at pedestrians on London Bridge before running amok at the nearby Borough Market stabbing people at random.

Mr Haydon's comments come as survivors of the London Bridge atrocity are to be joined by bereaved families, emergency service staff and politicians for a remembrance service at Southwark Cathedral today.

The PM arrived at Southwark Cathedral in central London shortly after Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott.

Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, said: Our city faced some incredibly hard times past year, with the terrorist attacks in Westminster, London Bridge, Finsbury Park and Parsons Green.

The city of London came together Sunday to remember the eight people killed a year ago during terrorist attacks at London Bridge and Borough market.

"One of the other announcements I'll be making tomorrow is that MI5 will be sharing much more of its information with other organisations", he said on the BBC's Andrew Marr show.

"While the very worst was happening, the best of the human spirit was shining brightly".

Before the ceremony an impromptu service was held on the structure by the Islamic non-profit London Fatwa Council, with members carrying placards reading "One year later, London more united than ever" and framed pictures of the dead.

The service at Southwark Cathedral will honour the emergency services' response to last year's attack, as well as remembering the people killed and injured.

"It's so important to remember not just the bad evil, but also the incredible acts of courage and heroism, of kindness, tenderness and compassion", she said.

She added: "My message to those who seek to target our way of life or try to divide us is clear - our resolve to stand firm and overcome this threat together has never been stronger".

Among those visiting the cathedral for the service on the south bank of the Thames, set to include a procession to the bridge, will be Frenchwoman Christine Delcros, 46.

Mrs May paid tribute to the bravery of first responders and others, including Ignacio Echeverria, a Spanish man who tackled the attackers with his skateboard and died in the attack.

She said the nationalities of the victims - from the UK, Canada, France, Australia and Spain - was "a reflection of our great cosmopolitan capital" and "a tragic reminder that the threat from terrorism transcends borders".

It said the threat from extreme-right violence is growing.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Dean Haydon on Saturday urged the public to remain watchful as the United Kingdom threat level remains at severe, meaning an attack is highly likely.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid said Sunday that he plans to recruit 2,000 new security service officers to help combat the threat.
