Lorraine Kelly couldn't bite her tongue about the London Bridge terror attack when she appeared on Good Morning Britain on Monday.

Usman Khan murdered Cambridge graduates Jack Merritt, 25, and Saskia Jones, 23, on Friday after he was released from prison under licence for terrorist offences.

The TV host called the decision to release him a "balls up" and "absolutely outrageous" when she appeared on GMB to talk about what was coming up on her own show, ITV's Lorraine.

Lorraine said: "Isn't it awful? It's it depressing? When are we gonna get grown ups in politics and the law to actually do something and take action to make us safe?"

GMB host Piers Morgan commented that the "milk's been spilled in blood", saying: "Two Cambridge students with everything to live for have been brutally murdered because we let this guy out after eight years."

Piers pointed out that there are 20,000 fewer police officers under the Conservative government and fewer prison officers, all while Jihadism has been on the rise.

Lorraine added: "It doesn't make any sense, it's a total balls up and it's absolutely outrageous.

"We need to be kept safe, our kids need to be kept safe.

"It's absolutely insane and we need some proper leadership to sort us out."

Khan stabbed five people in Fishmongers' Hall before being held down by members of the public in nearby London Bridge until police arrived and shot him dead.

Jack Merritt and Saskia Jones died following the attack.

Both victims were involved in the university's Learning Together programme – Jack as a co-ordinator and Saskia as a volunteer.

Terrorist Khan was on licence and wearing an electronic monitoring tag when he launched his attack as he attended the conference on prisoner rehabilitation hosted by the scheme at Fishmongers' Hall.
