The announcement came after the Metropolitan Police said they had recovered a body from the River Thames in their search for Xavier Thomas, a 45-year-old French national missing in since the weekend.

Formal identification has not yet taken place, the police said, but Mr. Thomas' next of kin have been informed of this development. The second was Australian nurse, Kirsty Boden, who was killed as she tried to help the wounded on London Bridge.

The force said witness accounts suggest Thomas might have been thrown into the river, and is urging anyone who saw anything to contact detectives.

He underlined, "we must leave for our future generations a climate wherein they can breathe clean air and have a healthy life". According to the Russian president, politicians backing Hillary Clinton miscalculated the mood during the U.S. campaign.

Last night around 7:45pm, the body of another man was recovered from the river, near Limehouse, by specialist officers from the Marine Police Unit.

"They were walking south over London Bridge at around the time the attack started".

"We have had the latest toll confirmed this morning, which is three people dead and eight injured on the French side", said Macron, who was speaking during a joint news conference with Danish prime minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen. Family and friends of the couple have also launched an online appeal for information about his whereabouts.
