Neighbours report hearing shots as 12 are arrested in raid on flats

Seven people have died in the terrorist incidents in London and three attackers have been shot dead by police, Scotland Yard said.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick said: "Last night we saw another appalling and tragic incident in London, something we hoped we would not see again".

Speaking outside Downing Street, Mrs May said that although there was no direct link between the three incidents: "As terrorism breeds terrorism and perpetrators are inspired to attack, not only on the basis of carefully constructed plots after years of planning and training, and not even as lone attackers radicalised online, but by copying one another and often using the crudest of means of attack". "The Uber stopped, we asked people what was going on - people said there was shooting", said Yoann Belmere, 40, a French banker living in London. She reiterated calls for an worldwide agreement to "regulate cyber space to prevent the spread of extremist terrorism planning".

The attackers brought carnage to the capital, stabbing a police officer and revellers with 12-inch knives - but police put a stop to the rampage in eight minutes.

On May 22, a suicide bomber killed 22 people and injured dozens at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.

The eyewitness described injured people lining the bridge in the wake of the van's path. British Transport Police said one of its officers, among the first to arrive, took the attackers on armed only with his baton, and was seriously injured.

It was the third major attack in Britain in the past three months.

US President Donald Trump took to Twitter amid the unfolding deadly drama to offer help to Britain and to promote his controversial travel ban as an extra level of security for Americans. "He swerved right round me and then hit about five or six people".

And he enjoyed a stellar 2016/17 campaign as they secured a sixth-place finish, bagging 16 goals and providing three assists. The Senegal worldwide would be a decent signing for the Reds.

"They were trying to force their way into a restaurant", he told ITV.

"We believe three people were involved, but we still have got some more inquiries to do to be 100 percent confident in that", he said.

Taxi driver Chris was on London Bridge as the attackers smashed their van into pedestrians around 10:00pm (2100 GMT) before sprinting, armed with knives, towards nearby bars packed with revellers.

"We ran for like 100 meters and then saw loads of police cars turned up and there was kind of a period of quite intense gunfire", he said.

He said the attackers chased him after he managed to hit one of them in the back with a chair.

He added that "it did not look like an accident", saying it was clear that police "thought they were responding to something far more serious than a road traffic accident".

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said on LBC: "My respect for the emergency services increases each additional day that I am the mayor of London".

A van has hit multiple people on London Bridge in the United Kingdom capital, according to the BBC. They later declared the incidents at Borough Market and London Bridge as terrorist attacks. K., we will be there - WE ARE WITH YOU. We recently witnessed this after the attacks in Manchester and in the Westminster area of London.
