Van plows through Pedestrians in London
Saturday, 03 June 2017


The capital has been rocked by a suspected terror attack tonight with multiple fatalities after a van ploughed into pedestrians on London Bridge and a knife attack nearby.

Up to 20 people are feared to be injured on the bridge as horrified witnesses reported seeing bodies strewn on the pavement after the incident at about 10pm.

Metropolitan Police have also confirmed a second incident at Borough Market involving reports of stabbings as well as a third incident at Vauxhall.

Witnesses at Borough Market have claimed three men jumped out of a van and started stabbing people.

The vehicle mounted the pavement at the scene in central London this evening before mowing down pedestrians, according to shocked witnesses.

Police say there have been more multiple fatalities, the BBC said.

Metropolitan Police said: "From 2208hrs officers responded to reports of a vehicle in collision with pedestrians on London Bridge.

"Officers have then responded to reports of stabbings in BoroughMarket. Armed officers responded and shots have been fired.

"Officers are now responding to an incident in the Vauxhall area."

The incident comes just two months after a terrorist mowed down pedestrians at Westminster Bridge before stabbing an unarmed cop. Five victims were killed in the attack.

A witness told Reuters she saw people with apparent knife wounds on the bridge.

The news agency said a witness had said she saw three people with what appeared to be throats cut.

Sky News has quoted sources saying the incident at London Bridge is believed to be terrorism related.

Another witness said gunfire was heard.
