According to media reports, a white van hit pedestrians on London Bridge at about 22:00 BST on Saturday, then three men got out and began randomly stabbing people in nearby Borough Market.

The attackers stabbed British Transport Police officer who was on-duty and responding to the initial incident on the bridge. His injuries are not life-threatening.

The attackers used 12-inch hunting knives to attack revellers at busy bars and restaurants in the market, sending dozens of others fleeing for their lives.
