INCIDENT UPDATE, 03 June 2017, London Bridge, London

From London Protect

On 03 June at 22:08hrs the Metropolitan Police began to receive reports that a vehicle had struck pedestrians on London Bridge. The vehicle continued to drive from London Bridge to Borough Market.

The suspects then left the vehicle and a number of people were stabbed, including an on-duty British Transport Police officer who was responding to the incident at London Bridge. He received serious but not life-threatening injuries.

Armed officers responded quickly, confronting three male suspects who were shot and killed in Borough Market within eight minutes of the first call. The suspects were wearing what looked like explosive vests but these were later established to be hoaxes.
