"A man and woman who died following the terrorist attack near to London Bridge on Friday, 29 November have been formally identified as Jack Merritt, 25, of Cottenham, Cambridgeshire and Saskia Jones, 23, of Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire".
Merritt was a course coordinator at Cambridge University's criminology institute, which was hosting its event by London Bridge to mark five years of its prisoner rehabilitation programme.
On Monday morning, a vigil will be held for the victims of Friday's terror attack and the emergency services and members of the public who tackled Khan before he was shot dead by police.
The incident comes two years after Islamist extremists in a van ploughed into pedestrians on London Bridge before attacking people at random with knives in nearby Borough Market. They were fatally stabbed by 28-year-old convicted terrorist Usman Khan during an event created to connect graduate students with prisoners.

After a one-day pause out of respect for victims, Friday's attack is dominating the political scene as the December 12 election nears, shifting the focus, at least for the moment, from Brexit and the National Health Service to issues of security and criminal justice.
Later that day, Staffordshire Police said a 34-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of preparation of terrorist acts - but added there was no information to suggest the man was involved in the London Bridge attack. It later emerged that Khan had been wearing a hoax suicide bomb vest after he was over-powered by members of the public before being shot by police gunmen.
The group, which includes survivors of the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing and attacks in London, also says all venues must set up anti-terror security plans.
The accuracy of Mr Johnson's claim was challenged by Ed Davey, deputy leader of the Liberal Democrats, who told Sky News that the Prime Minister was misleading the public about the current law regarding the early release of prisoners.
But his sentence was quashed by the Court of Appeal in 2013 and he received a new 21-year term, comprising a custodial sentence of 16 years and five years on conditional release. Khan had originally received an indeterminate sentence to be kept behind bars for public protection but this was quashed by the United Kingdom court of appeal in April 2013, after which he was given a determinate 16-year jail term and ordered to serve at least eight years in prison before being considered for parole.

Critics have hit out fiercely at Johnson for appearing to politicise Friday's attack - including the father of Jack Merritt.
It was targeted by Khan, a former participant, who arrived armed with two knives.
"Jack lived his principles; he believed in redemption and rehabilitation, not revenge", the household wrote.
"We don't need knee-jerk reactions", he added in a series of messages responding to the political furor around the attack.
