London Authorities Investigate Van Attack, Stabbings

The BBC reported that police arrested a man who "was handcuffed and had his shirt off" after the van traveled from central London toward the south end of the River Thames.

"He swerved right round me and then hit about five or six people".

A photo was also published of another man being arrested in the Vauxhall area of London, although police are now saying that the Vauxhall incident is not related to the coordinated terrorist attacks in London at London Bridge and Borough Market.

"Someone said, 'What is going on?' and one of the people running said, 'There is a man with a knife up there and he is coming this way.' There was complete panic as everyone ran to the back of the restaurant and crouched down trying to hide themselves from view", the witness said.

Three men reportedly mowed pedestrians down on London Bridge.

Britain's Press Association news agency says members of the public were told to run away as fast as they could from the area, which is filled with restaurants and pubs. My thoughts are with everyone affected, and I'd like to thank the fearless men and women of our emergency services who were first on the scene and will be working throughout the night.

Will Heaven was at London Bridge shortly after the incident and wrote on Twitter that he had seen casualties - one on the pavement and one on the edge of the road.

Police treated injured on the bridge, buildings in the area were evacuated and subway stations in the area shut down.

British police are responding to three incidents across London following reports of a vehicle slamming into pedestrians on the London Bridge.

The bridge has been closed at the request of police as a hunt continued for at least three suspects, with police unaware of whether all the terrorists were accounted for.

"And then we ran into the restaurant into the kitchen, where there was a bunch of other people and a guy had been stabbed and he was cut and he was bleeding quite a lot".

Explosions heard near the scenes are believed to be controlled police blasts, local media report.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan describes bridge area incidents as "deliberate and cowardly attack on innocent Londoners".

London's Metropolitan Police declared the events at London Bridge and Borough Market as "terrorist incidents". He thought the person had been drinking, but then police vans flew by. Please report anything suspicious to the police, but only call 999 in an emergency. You know, London, as you know, a vibrant city, especially on a Saturday night. "Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by these incidents." .

"I condemn it in the strongest possible terms".

Police asked people to stay away from the Bridge and Market areas.
