A terrorist behind the London Bridge massacre last month has been buried in secret with no ceremony and no mourners after "cemeteries refused to accept his body".

Khuram Butt's own mother was not present when a relative drove his body to a graveyard near the family home in East London.

They held no ceremony and invited no mourners to avoid any attention.

A source told the Mirror: "The family are distraught with what he did but he is still their son and brother.

"His mother is not in a good way health-wise after what has happened so it was decided she should not attend."

130 Imans refused to perform funeral prayers for him, the Express reports.

The deceased 27-year-old drove a van into pedestrians with two accomplices Rachid Redouane, 30, and Youssef Zaghba, 22, before stabbing people to death in central London on June 3.

They murdered seven people and injured dozens more.

Butt and the two other terrorists were shot dead.

Butt became radicalised after watching hate preachers on YouTube before becoming linked to al-Muhajiroun, the banned extremist group whose leader, Anjem Choudary, is in jail.

It is believed that he moved to the UK from Pakistan when he was a child.

Butt first came to public attention on a Channel 4 programme called The Jihadis Next Door in January last year when he made his extremist views clear.

Chief executive of the Ramadhan Foundation, Mohammed Shafiq, told the Express: "Many of us in the British Muslim community have been demanding action against these extremists to no avail.

"I am not surprised that Khuram Butt carried out the terrorist attack and there are serious questions for the authorities."
