London Bridge incident: Reports of gunshots as police detain stabbing suspect
London Bridge has been sealed off after several people were injured in a stabbing amid reports of gunshots in central London.
Eyewitnesses said they saw what they believed to be a fight between several men trying to restrain another man.
It was also reported that gunshots from London Bridge and one video shows what appears to be police pulling equipment out of a vehicle nearby.
Those in the video can be heard saying: “They’ve actually got guns out. They’ve got the guns out.”
Another video purports to show a man lying on the pavement on the bridge as armed police officers can be seen pointing guns at him.
Police have evacuated also London Bridge station and the surrounding area including offices and restaurants.
A cordon has been set up at Borough Market while evacuation continues from nearby shops and businesses.
Response from officers led scores of people to run down St Thomas’ street, though the exact cause of the incident is still unknown. Telegraph
