Breaking News: Seven Dead in London Bridge and Borough Market Van & Knife Terrorist Attacks
The death toll from the terrorist attack in London Bridge has risen to seven and almost 50 were injured, the head of Scotland Yard has revealed.
Metropolitan Police commissioner Cressida Dick condemned the atrocity as “appalling” and “ghastly”.
She said police believe there were three attackers at London Bridge and Borough Market and that all had been “neutralised”.
Attackers brought carnage to the streets of the capital, stabbing a police officer and revellers with 12-inch knives, reportedly shouting “this is for Allah”.
The trio were pictured wearing what appeared to be explosive vests, with police later confirming they were hoaxes.
