Police Confirm Third Incident In Vauxhall Area Of London


Armed police are attending a third major incident in London in just a few hours in the Vauxhall area. 

This comes after armed police swooped on London Bridge and Borough Market in quick succession.

Police have also issued information to the public on how they should act in situations such as these.

Sky News has reported a person has been arrested in Vauxhall, but no further details have been released as of yet.
Witnesses have said they heard police firing into Brindisa Tapas bar not far away from the earlier incident on the bridge.

A white transit van mounted a curb on London Bridge and hit pedestrians, according to the Metropolitan Police.

The Met Police have confirmed they are dealing with an incident on the bridge and “multiple resources” are in attendance.

Armed officers arrived at the scene and were deployed across Southwark Bridge and Borough High Street.

BBC reporter Holly Jones was on the bridge at the time of the incident and gave BBC News an eye-witness report, saying the van was driven by a man and was “probably travelling at about 50 miles an hour”.

She added:

He swerved right round me and then hit about five or six people. He hit about two people in front of me and then three behind. I’d say there are about four severely injured people. They all have paramedics assisting them at the moment.
