The coroner was also critical of Butt's family, whom he said were aware of his extremist views but failed to report him to the authorities.

But Jonathan Hough QC, the counsel to the inquests, said in his submission that while errors may have been made by MI5 and the police, "it is impossible to say that any such flaws were causally relevant to the deaths under investigation".

But Mr Lucraft did criticise the lack of barriers on the bridge - a "particularly vulnerable" location.

Members of the public lay flowers near the scene of the London Bridge terrorist attacks, on June 7, 2017 in London, England.

"There was a weakness in ... assessing the need for such measures..."

Sara Zelenak left Australia to work as an au pair in the United Kingdom and Europe.

He said there was an "arguable" case there had been a breach of an operational duty in relation to the police and MI5 investigation before the attack and a general breach of systems for protective security on the bridge.

Ms Delcros highlighted a "catalogue of failings", saying: "I believe this attack was preventable". "Kharum Butt was known to the authorities to be a unsafe person and it remains alarming that someone under active investigation can plan and perpetrate a terrorist attack".

Mr Pigeard's father said it had been two years of pain "to understand, to reconstruct the strain".

"She came to help my son who was bleeding to death".

He replied: "No, what's wrong with you?" and stabbed her in the neck. Britain's most senior counter-terrorism officer, the Metropolitan police assistant commissioner Neil Basu, was in court to hear the coroner's conclusions.

Mr Lucraft said four of Butt's family members who gave evidence at the inquest were unconvincing witnesses but had accepted they should have done more to warn authorities about him.

But he said: "It seems to me that on the basis of what he accepted he did know of his brother and the worrying views he was espousing, he did very little, if anything, to accurately monitor his brother's movements".

Butt's widow, Zahrah Rehman, previously told the court she knew her husband was associating with radical preacher Anjem Choudary, but said he "never showed any signs" he would commit an act of terror.

She said she would not grieve for his death and also denied prior knowledge of her husband's plot - although she said she had been anxious he wanted to go to Syria.

London Ambulance Service chief executive Garrett Emmerson added: "It is a matter of great sadness to me that although we were able to help so many people that night, this violent attack claimed the lives of eight members of the public".

Victims of the terror attack.

PC Guenigault, who was awarded the George Medal, said he "played dead" after being stabbed in the head.

Butt, Rachid Redouane, 30, and Youssef Zaghba, 22, hired a van and ploughed into pedestrians on the bridge before stabbing people in Borough Market while wearing fake suicide vests.

The other people killed in the attack were French chef Sebastien Belanger, 36, Canadian national Chrissy Archibald, 30, French restaurant worker Alexandre Pigeard, 26, French national Xavier Thomas, 45, Ignacio Echeverria, 39, of Spain and 32-year-old British-Filipino James McMullan, who reportedly went to the aid of Sara Zelenak. Another 48 people were injured.

Police shot dead the three terrorists ten minutes after the attack began.
