Man shot in London was wearing hoax bomb device -police

 The man shot dead on London Bridge on Friday was wearing what police now believe was a hoax explosive device, the UK's top counter-terrorism officer Neil Basu said.
"Due to reports that the suspect may have had an explosive device, specialist officers also attended the scene, and wide cordons are in place to ensure there remains no further danger to the public," Basu told reporters.
"However, I can confirm at this time we believe a device that was strapped to the body of the suspect is a hoax explosive device."
