>> British political leaders rushing to an emergency meeting, Sunday morning, after the previous night's terror attack in London Bridge. The so called, corporal committee discussing the vehicle and knife attack that left seven dead and around 50 injured. Flags flying at half-mast over Downing Street as the talks took place.

Where it had been placed following the Manchester suicide bombing. That decision now likely to face very close scrutiny.
