Reports from Britain’s Press Association say that multiple people have been stabbed and that armed officers responding to the incident have fired shots at Borough Market near the London Bridge.

At least one of the dead was shot by police in Borough Market.

London Metro Police issued this warning shortly after the attacks began:

A massive manhunt for three men with knives has begun.

Multiple explosions have been reported and police may have at least one suspect in custody.

London Bridge

A van ran struck several pedestrians, perhaps as many as 20, on the London Bridge and conflicting reports say that between one and three attackers then jumped out of the vehicle and began stabbing people.

“He’s veered across the road towards the right hand of where Southwark Cathedral is and rammed it where the steps are,” a cabbie in the area said. “He just rammed it towards them, wedged it in between the lamppost and the steps and so he’s hit people there. They’ve jumped out of the van and started stabbing people randomly.”

That same cabbie reportedly turned his cab on the terrorists in an attempt to end the attack. “I’m gonna try and hit him, I’m gonna try and knock him down,” the unidentified cab driver said. “I spun the cab round, I was about to ram one of them, but he side-stepped and three police officers came running towards them with their batons drawn.”

One witness said she saw three people with what appeared to be their throats cut on London Bridge amid the “utter chaos.”

Borough Market

Several more people were stabbed at Borough Bistro.

The market is near the London Bridge. A crashed van and men with knives were reported in the area indicating these are likely the same men from the bridge.

Vauxhall Area

The Vauxhall stabbing has now been ruled “not connected” by local police.
