Khan’s November 2019 attack used modus operandi that had been popularised by previous Isis-inspired attackers, including knives and a fake suicide vest

There was “nothing to support” Isis’s claim of responsibility for a London terror attack that left two victims dead, the security services have said.

Usman Khan launched a knife rampage at a prison rehabilitation event at Fishmongers’ Hall on 29 November 2019.

The 28-year-old, who was wearing a fake suicide vest, was chased onto London Bridge by attendees and shot dead by armed police.
