Police searching for a Frenchman missing since Saturday’s attack on London Bridge say they have recovered a body from the River Thames, potentially taking the death toll to eight.
The Metropolitan Police said the body was found on Tuesday downstream from the bridge. Formal identification of the body has not taken place, but the family of 45-year-old Xavier Thomas has been informed of the discovery.
