Report car hits pedestrians on London Bridge, some said hurt

A van plowed into pedestrians on London Bridge and two people were stabbed at a nearby cafe Saturday night, in what London police called "terrorist incidents".

According to The Associated Press, a van struck multiple people on the bridge in a hit-and-run incident, and "witnesses also reported seeing people being stabbed by at least one man".

A witness told the BBC she saw a speeding white van veering into pedestrians.

London police are treating injured people on a small street some 500 meters (yards) southwest of London Bridge, where witnesses say pedestrians were hit by a vehicle and police say they are responding to an incident.

"We saw injured people on the road, injured people on the pavement", he told Sky News.

British Transport Police said there were reports of "multiple" casualties following the major incident on London Bridge.

The incident happened on a warm Saturday night in a busy area full of bars and restaurants.

The force has tweeted a warning telling people in the area to run to safety, hide and then call police if it is safe to do so.

Metropolitan Police tweeted the London Bridge and Borough Market incidents were declared terrorist incidents.

"I told people to turn around and run away".

A Downing Street spokesman said: "The Prime Minister is in contact with officials and is being regularly updated on the incident at London Bridge".

Soon after the incident, the BBC reported that police were looking for up to three armed men.

Ms Jones said police were on the scene within two minutes, quickly followed by ambulances.

Simon Thompson told Sky News that he was just outside Borough Market when he saw crowds fleeing. A chef from the nearby Fish restaurant said: "I saw two guys with big knives downstairs outside Roast".

"We went outside to the back, there was the gunfire and then we chose to come back in again".

The Sun newspaper, whose offices are beside London Bridge, reported hearing explosions about three hours after the attacks began. It is not clear if these were controlled explosions by police on the scene.

The Royal Oak pub, near the attack site, opened its doors to people evacuated from hotels inside the area cordoned off by police.

Twenty-two people were killed in a suicide bombing at the popstar's Manchester concert last month.

MARTIN: And, Frank, we only have a little bit less than a minute left, but this is all coming just a month after three people were killed near Parliament there in London when a auto ran over victims. After that attack, Britain's official threat level from terrorism was raised to "critical", meaning an attack may be imminent.

A charity concert for victims of the Manchester attack, featuring Grande and other stars, is due to be held in the northwest English city on Sunday.
