A white van has reportedly ploughed into 20 people in a suspected ‘terror attack’ on London Bridge station.
There are unconfirmed reports that least seven people have been stabbed as witnesses told of bodies ‘strewn’ on the road at the landmark in central London.
One witness said she saw three people with what appeared to be their throats cut on London Bridge.
Others said they saw three men, described as being ‘of Mediterranean origin’, jump out of the van and began ‘randomly stabbing people’ along Borough High Street with 12-inch long knives.
The car, believed to be a B&Q vehicle, was veering in an ‘S shape’ across the bridge. The drivers have not been caught.
Terrifying footage from the scene shows police officers shooting ‘Clear the scene now!’ as panicked pedestrians flee.
The bridge is in lock down and the area around it is closed with bus routes being diverted, as armed police and a bomb squad attend the scene and boats search the water.
