“A van hitting people at London Bridge and three people then jumping out of the vehicle and attacking members of the public at about 22:15;
– A separate incident at Borough Market, involving men carrying knives. Armed officers responded and shots were fired
– Police have now said they are responding to a third incident in Vauxhall”
According to an eyewitness, a taxi driver, “A van came from London Bridge itself, went between the traffic light system and rammed it towards the steps. It knocked loads of people down.
“Then three men got out with long blades, 12 inches long and went randomly along Borough High Street stabbing people at random.”
The Metropolitan Police have issued warnings about these three locations:
