London Bridge terror attack: Facts minus speculation : i News

At least six people have been killed after people enjoying a night out in London were mown down by a van and stabbed in an attack by several suspected terrorists. Three male suspects have been shot dead by armed police. Mark Rowley, Assistant Met Police Commissioner, says they were shot within eight minutes of the first call to emergency services. He added that the explosives and canisters seen strapped to the vests of some the suspects were established to have been hoaxes. At least 20 people have been taken to six hospitals, but details of the carnage are still emerging.

Early this morning, three explosions were heard close to the offices of The Sun newspaper. They are thought to have been controlled blasts as part of the police operation. Theresa May confirmed in the early hours that the attack was being treated as a “potential act of terrorism”. She will chair an emergency Cobra meeting later this morning. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn tweeted his horror at the attack. The Prime Minister added: “This is a fast moving investigation. I want to express my huge gratitude to the police and emergency services who are on the scene. “Our thoughts are with those who are caught up in these dreadful events.” The attack began when a van travelling at high speed ploughed into people on London Bridge shortly after 10pm. According to one eyewitness, at least three men jumped out of the back and went down Borough High Street “stabbing people at random” with 12-inch knives.

    1. Daily Mail oozing desperation again…

      The comment made by Barbara Ntumy, was made in 2014!
      How long before they dredge a photo out of the archive, showing Jeremy Corbyn, throwing his rattle out of the pram at age one. Citing it as positive proof that Corbyn has a vile temper and is not “Stable” like Theresa?…
