Police Confirm Six Dead In London Terror Attack In Addition To Three Attackers


Police have released a statement confirming six people have died following a terrorist attack on London Bridge and Borough Market. The three attackers were shot dead. 

In a statement released, police confirmed the attackers were shot dead within eight minutes of the first call being made.

It is believed that the suspects drove a van into pedestrians on the bridge before continuing their cowardly attack into Borough Market where they attacked civilians with knives.

A picture was posted on the BBC, which sources say show a man laying on the ground with ‘canisters strapped around his waist’ with another potential perpetrator in the background.

At around 22.15 this evening a van, travelling at ‘about 50mph’ mowed down pedestrians at London Bridge and witnesses reported hearing ‘tremendous gunfire’.

The Mayor of London has released a statement on the ‘deliberate and cowardly attack on innocent Londoners.’

Metropolitan Police earlier confirmed that the attacks at London Bridge and Borough Market are terrorist incidents.

A third incident, which occurred in Vauxhall, has been confirmed as a stabbing that is not connected to the first two.
