Two Terror Incidents at London Bridge and Borough Market

The Met Police have been dealing with a number of separate Terror Attacks across London. Our Emergency services have done a terrific job overnight as we ran from the danager our emergency services ran in.

They very quickly cleared large areas of London knowing that a 5 possible attackers armed with knifes were on the streets. London came together as Taxi Drivers offerered people free lifts to safety Uber and London Taxi drivers quickly stopped people on the streets and got them out of the area for free.

Local hotels and businesses offered to take those caught up in the attack offering a free place of safety for the night. London came together and proved you cannot break humanity.

Sadly there has been reports that a number of people have tragically died, We have intentionally not posted or shared any images relating to this terror attack in London.  It is believed 5 armed with knifes entered the Borough Market area, members of the public attacked them with chairs and glass bottles. The Met Police responded to three incidents across London. Police received reports of a vehicle which had hit a number of pedestrians on London Bridge.

Armed Police and the Ambulance service quickly responded to the incident with reports 15 – 20 people had been hit by a white van.

Very soon after police received reports of a number of people being stabbed in the Borough Market area. Eyewitnesses said they had heard a round of gunfire before police had arrived on the scene.

Armed officers then responded to a third incident in the Vauxhall. Police issued urgent advice to Run, Hide Tell as the incidents unfolded across London.

Police then reassured members of the public to reamin calm, but be alert & vigilant as they are using all the necessary skills and resources at the three locations London Bridge, Borough Market and Vauxhall.

The incident within Vauxhall was quickly resloved and believed not to be linked to the terror attacks. It was confirmed the Vauxhall was a stabbing incident and not linked to the terror incident.

MPS on the Water later confirmed that they were evacuating a number of members of the public on the River Thames.

Tower RNLI were tasked and provided assistance to the police.

Our thoughts are with all of those impacted.
