A series of co-ordinated terror attacks have hit London in three different areas, with reports of dozens of casualties from stabbings and pedestrians mown down by a vehicle.
London Bridge has been closed due to a “police incident” as multiple eyewitnesses reported that pedestrians had been hit by a van. People at the scene said that a van had ploughed onto the pavement and into people.
The bridge has been closed in both directions and passengers evacuated from the nearby London Bridge station.
Police are treating injured people and carrying them away at the end Thrale Street.
Members of the public said they were told by police to “run as fast as they could” from the scene shortly after they were attending a third incident in the Vauxhall area.
The Prime Minister was being kept informed of developments and Whitehall sources told The Sunday Telegraph last night that the incident “appeared to be” terror-related.
