Police responding to ‘incident’ on London Bridge, several people mowed down by vehicle

London Bridge has been placed on lockdown amid reports of three men carrying knives attacking people and up to 20 have reportedly been struck by a van.

Armed police are at the scene in what is being described as a “major incident“, possibly a terrorist attack.

Witnesses described a white van mounting the curb and hitting as many as up to 20 people on the bridge.

The incident happened at 10.30pm on Saturday.

A cab driver on the bridge has reported he saw a stabbing man.

Members of the public have been warned to stay away from the area, and London Bridge station, a busy interchange connecting the Tube and rail networks, has been closed.

UPDATE: Police have confirmed that the incidents at London Bridge and Borough Market are terrorism.
