Telegraph UK reports, “London Bridge, Borough Market and Vauxhall have all been hit in what appears to be a series of coordinated attacks south of the River Thames.”
From UK Daily Mail:
Seven people are feared dead after three men with 12-inch hunting knives reportedly stabbed revellers after mowing down up to 20 people with a white van on London Bridge.
The men, described as being ‘of Mediterranean origin’, reportedly drove the van at 50mph across the bridge, then shouted ‘this is for Allah’ as they jumped out and began ‘randomly stabbing people’ along Borough High Street in central London at 10pm.
One woman said she saw three people with what appeared to be their throats cut on London Bridge amid reports that at least seven people have been stabbed, leaving bodies ‘strewn’ on the road in central London.
One person has been killed at London Bridge – and one of the casualties is reportedly a police officer.
‘Rapid gunfire’ was heard in the London Bridge area as armed police are thought to have shot dead two of the men, with a search underway for the third man.
The gang had canisters attached to their chests as they stabbed multiple people in nearby Borough Market. Armed police have responded to reports of stabbings there and shots have been fired.
Police have responded to another incident in Vauxhall in south London, telling people ‘you must run, hide and tell’, Scotland Yard said.
A man has been arrested, as Sky News reported live from Borough High Street.
There are also unconfirmed reports of gunfire on Southwark Street.
50 armed police have entered Monument station with police dogs and bystanders have been told to run. Bank and Monument tube stations have been closed.
