The British government has opened an urgent review of terrorists released from prison following the London Bridge knife attack.

Usman Khan (28) stabbed to death Jack Merritt (25) and a woman on Friday afternoon, leaving three other people injured.

Khan was convicted terrorist who was freed halfway through a 16-year jail sentence.

The attack has prompted the Ministry of Justice to review the licence conditions of every convicted terrorist released from prison, which is understood to be around 70 people.
