Man shot, several injured in attack on London bridge

Several people have been injured and one man shot by police following a stabbing spree on London Bridge, which police said they were responding to “as though it is terror-related”.

Video shows a man, apparently the suspect, grappling with members of the public on the ground. As he tries to get up he appears to be hit by gunfire and collapses on the ground.

A man in a suit and jacket could be seen backing away from the man having taken a large knife. After at least two shots are heard, passengers can be heard screaming, with one shouting: “What the f***, they’ve killed him.”

Police evacuated London Bridge station and set up a cordon at Borough Market while nearby shops and businesses were evacuated. Station staff at Monument claimed five people had been injured.
