Khairi Saadallah, 25, has been charged with three counts of murder and three counts of attempted murder, Thames Valley Police said.

Friends James Furlong, 36, David Wails, 49, and Joe Ritchie-Bennett, 39, all died in the attack in Forbury Gardens on 20 June.

"Three people were killed and died at the scene and a further three people were taken to hospital for treatment for their injuries".

It was later declared a terrorist incident by Deputy Assistant Commissioner Dean Haydon, senior national coordinator for Counter Terrorism Policing.

Mr Saadallah is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Monday.

Furlong's family released a tribute on Saturday thanking those who had rushed to help the three men in the aftermath of the attack.

An online vigil will be held at 7pm, the time of the attacks last Saturday, which aims to bring people together by asking them to light a candle on their doorstep or put a light or candle in their window and to stand in solidarity with #ReadingTogether.

Mr Furlong's family said: 'We would like to start by thanking the police for their ongoing help, including their remarkable bravery.

Martin Cooper, chief executive of Reading Pride, said he also had been friends with all three men, and they were "great supporters" of the community.

"Equally, we would like to express our gratitude to the emergency services, members of the public and the wider Reading community, who did all they could to help and save the lives of those who had been injured that night", Furlong's family added. He cared so much and was very proud of each and every one of you.

The statement said: 'We LOVED (sic) Joe so much and we are in such deep sorrow.

The family of Ritchie-Bennett also released a statement, telling of their "deep sorrow". A post-mortem found that they all died of a single stab wound.

Meanwhile the mayor of Reading told a vigil at 7pm today that the town's community "shall not be divided" by the recent attack.

Reading Borough Council said tonight's vigil would allow people to show solidarity and pay their respects in lockdown until a fitting event could be held in Reading.

Council leader Jason Brock said: "There is an overwhelming sense of grief within the Reading community about last Saturday's tragic events".

"The council and public are united in their desire to mourn the victims and appropriately remember them".

An online book of condolence has also been opened for people to pay tribute to the three friends, who were members of the LGBT community.

Thames Valley Police's Chief Constable John Campbell said at the vigil: "We will never forget David, James and Joseph".

"I know it will take time for everyone to heal but we stand alongside you and will do all that we can to support you, as your Police".
