Six people have been killed and 48 injured in a horrific series of attacks in central London.

A gang of terrorists mowed down pedestrians on a night out on London Bridge at 10.08pm on Saturday night.

Witnesses said it was travelling at around 50mph, and veered into the crowds three times before speeding away from the carnage.

Holly Jones, a BBC reporter who was on the bridge at the time, said: ‘A white van driver came speeding – probably about 50mph – veered off into the crowds of people who were walking along the pavement.

‘He swerved right round me and then hit about five or six people.’

The attackers then drove into Borough Market, going door to door stabbing unsuspecting revellers with large, 12-inch knives.

Terrifying footage has been circulated of officers storming pubs in the area and screaming at everyone to get down underneath their tables for shelter.

Shots were then fired – which later transpired to be officers killing the attackers.

Just eight minutes after first responders got to the scene, it’s believed all three terrorists were dead.
