London will not be cowed by militants who have killed 35 people in three separate attacks on the United Kingdom but police will ask for more resources to tackle the threat from marauding assailants, London police chief Cressida Dick told Reuters.

Three Islamist militants rammed a hired van into pedestrians on London Bridge last Saturday before going on the rampage through the bustling Borough Market area where they slit throats and stabbed people.Three French, two Australians, one Canadian, a Spanish and a Briton were killed in the attack. Armed police shot dead the three attackers just eight minutes after the first phone call from the public.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Dick said she understood that people were concerned about security after attacks in London and Manchester but that the British capital was a safe city that would not be intimidated.



"London is a safe city and we will do everything we can in our power to keep you safe," she said in an interview at London police headquarters just a few steps away from Westminster Bridge where an attacker killed 5 people on March 22.

"We won't let them win and London will carry on," she said.
