Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn paid tribute to the victims of Friday’s London Bridge terror attack at a vigil in London this morning. Campaigning was briefly suspended in London after the attack, with a row quickly breaking out between Labour and the Conservatives over killer Usman Khan’s early release from prison.

Daniel and Shehab gets Robert’s take. As we get closer to polling day (10 days, to be exact), we’re continuing to catch up with ITV’s political correspondents based around the country to find out what’s happening in their patch and the key races in their area we should be keeping an eye on that could decide the outcome of the election.
