    'Van hits pedestrians' on London Bridge in 'major incident'
    [​IMG]
    Police are responding to reports that a van has hit a number of pedestrians on London Bridge in central London.

    Witnesses have said that armed officers are understood to be at the scene after a white van mounted the pavement before driving into people.

    The Metropolitan Police say they are dealing with an incident on the bridge.

    Transport for London said the bridge has been closed in both directions due to a "major police incident". Bus routes were being diverted.

    BBC reporter Holly Jones, who was on the bridge at the time of the incident, said the van was driven by a man and was "probably travelling at about 50 miles an hour".

    About five people were being treated for injuries after the vehicle mounted the pavement and hit them, she said.

    She said the van, which was travelling from the direction of central London, headed towards the south side of the river.

    Ms Jones later reported seeing a man being arrested by police. She said he was handcuffed and had his shirt off.

    Seven people are feared dead after three men with 12-inch hunting knives reportedly stabbed revellers after mowing down up to 20 people with a white van on London Bridge.

    The men, described as being 'of Mediterranean origin', reportedly jumped out of the van and began 'randomly stabbing people' along Borough High Street in central London at 10pm.

    One woman said she saw three people with what appeared to be their throats cut on London Bridge amid reports that at least seven people have been stabbed, leaving bodies 'strewn' on the road in central London.

    The car is believed to have veered in an 'S shape' at 50mph across the bridge and has driven towards the Shard and is south of the river.

    'Rapid gunfire' was heard in the London Bridge area as armed police are thought to have shot dead two of the men, with a search underway for the third man.

    One person has been killed at London Bridge - and one of the casualties is reportedly a police officer.

    Armed police have also responded to reports of stabbings in nearby Borough Market and shots have been fired.

    Police have responded to another incident in Vauxhall in south London, telling people 'you must run, hide and tell', Scotland Yard said.

    A man has been arrested, as Sky News reported live from Borough High Street.

    There are also unconfirmed reports of gunfire on Southwark Street.

    50 armed police have entered Monument station with police dogs and bystanders have been told to run. Bank and Monument tube stations have been closed.
