London Bridge: suspect shot dead by police in incident 'treated as if terror-related' – live news
Police say five people have been injured in reported stabbings
Florence Keen, 28, a terrorism researcher, was in the area when the incident happened. She said:

I was on a bread-making course in Borough market, and we were initially told to stay inside, but could hear a lot of commotion and panic outside. After about half an hour
armed police told us to evacuate, and we were walked to safety about five minutes away.

They kept us all very calm, as ever, [I was] impressed by the response of the police. Police didn’t give us any information at the time.
I felt pretty shaken when we were shut inside but safe once we got out London Mayor Sadiq Khan has urged Londoners to “stay resolute in our determination to stand strong and united in the face of terror”.

In a statement he said:
“The Metropolitan Police have confirmed that as a precaution the horrendous incident at London Bridge is being treated as though it is terrorism-related.

I remain in close contact with the Metropolitan Police and am being kept updated with events. It has been confirmed
that people were injured in the attack. My heart goes out to them, their families and all affected.

Thank you to our brave emergency services who responded to today’s horrific attack. Every day they put their lives on the line for us – running towards danger in
order to keep London safe.

We must – and we will - stay resolute in our determination to stand strong and united in the face of terror. Those who seek to attack us and divide us will never succeed.
The London Bridge area remains closed – please avoid the area at this time and follow Met Police for further updates, and TfL for travel updates. If you are near the incident, please follow the directions of any officers on the ground.”
