London police responding to stabbing in restaurant near London Bridge

Incident on London Bridge

At least two people were killed and many more feared injured after the attacks at the London Bridge and Borough Market.

Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed that the "terrible incident in London" was being treated as "a potential act of terrorism".

BBC reporter Holly Jones was there at the time of the attack and said she saw the van veer into pedestrians and that she could see six casualties.

A security officer near London Bridge also told the network she saw people bloodied, running and screaming from the scene.

One witness heard them yelling Allah as they hunted down their victims. The driver said something bad is happening here.

The attack began when a van traveling at a high speed deliberately crashed into pedestrians near London Bridge. Basically lots of people came running inside, we didn't really know what was going on.

Another witness told Sky News that she had been in Katzenjammers, the Bavarian-style beer cellar near Borough Market when armed police entered the cellar shouting at people to hit the floor. It sickened me to the pit of my stomach. No official word yet on whether they are connected.

Police have confirmed they are responding to three separate incidents along the Thames River.

An image shared by a photographer on social media showed a man on the ground with what appeared to be grey canisters around his waist by the Wheatsheaf pub in Borough.

"This was a deliberate and cowardly attack on innocent Londoners and visitors to our city enjoying their Saturday night", Khan said.

On May 22, a British-born suicide bomber killed 22 people and injured 59 others at Ariana Grande's concert in Manchester, England. "Everyone in the bar started pushing people from the exits", one witness who gave his name as Brian, 32, told Reuters.

Witnesses have said they saw an attacker "coldly" carrying out stabbings with a large blade in Borough market.

Another witness, Mark Roberts, told CNN he saw the van hit multiple people before hitting a bus stop and stopping.

There were also reports that shots were fired with multiple people "seriously injured". And then there were nearly hundreds of people coming inside.

"Van drove into people on London Bridge, this is happening now. I want to express my huge gratitude to the police and emergency services who are on the scene", May added.

Transport for London said busy London Bridge station and two others were closed at the request of police.

The agency additionally tweeted a third incident has been reported in the Vauxhall neighborhood of South London, some 20 minutes away by auto. He also advocated his Travel Ban saying that this would be an extra level of safety for everyone.

It is thought to be linked to another attack moments earlier on which pedestrians were reportedly mown down by a van on nearby London Bridge.

In March, four people were killed in London after Khalid Masood rammed his vehicle into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, before fatally stabbing a policeman outside the Houses of Parliament.
