Central London has been shaken by a terrorist attack, with seven people confirmed dead. At least 48 people were injured and are being treated in hospital. Shortly after 10 o’clock last night, a white van was driven at high speed onto a pavement over London Bridge, mowing down pedestrians.
Police say three men armed with long knives then stepped out of the vehicle, and went on a stabbing spree, heading south to Borough Market. As the investigation gets underway, more details of the attack are emerging.
