Details are a bit sketchy at the moment, could possibly be gang related...

Quote:
A number of people are believed to have been injured in an incident at London Bridge, police have said.

The Met said they were called to a stabbing at a premises near the bridge just before 14:00.

The force said they had detained a man. London Ambulance Service has declared a "major incident".

The BBC's John McManus, at the scene, said he had seen a group of men in a fight on the bridge. Police then arrived and shots were fired, he said.

British Transport Police said London Bridge station was currently closed and no trains would be stopping there.

Police have advised people near the scene to follow directions from officers on the ground.

McManus told the BBC News channel: "Just a few minutes ago I was walking across London Bridge on the south bank to the north bank of the bridge.

"There appeared to be a fight going on on the other side of the bridge, with several men attacking one man.

"Police then quickly arrived, including armed police, and then a number of shots were fired at this man."

Noa Bodner, who is stuck in a restaurant on London Bridge. told BBC News channel: "There was a rush of people coming in and everybody basically dived under the tables.

"We were told to keep away from the windows, people that came from the outside were saying that shots were fired."

She said the manager ran to lock the doors and staff told people to move away from the front of the restaurant.

She said the mood was "calm", "some people seem a bit distressed, but they're being looked after by friends or staff".

Sounds like "toxic masculinity" again. Young men acting together to take down a jihadi.

Several amazing videos. Cops with long guns have to pull a civilian off the attacker before they shoot him. He's wearing a black balaclava.

Scotland Yard are now saying they are "responding to this incident as though it is terror-related".

No kidding. ;) I wonder if they asked Sherlock first? The responding officer shot the guy without even a verbal order. Completely appropriate considering they could not know if he had an IED.

Two officers with long guns there pretty quickly. They must be sprinkled all over the tourist areas.

Press conference from London Metropolitan Police:

The suspect apparently was wearing a fake explosive belt, which might account for why they shot him and are labelling the incident as "terrorism".
