LONDON: London’s Metropolitan Police have confirmed a stabbing attack near London Bridge, saying it believes a number of people are injured.

“Police were called at 1:58pm to a stabbing at premises near to London Bridge,” the police force said on Twitter. “A man has been detained by police.”

London Ambulance Service declared a “major incident”, saying it had several crews at the scene.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “I’m being kept updated on the incident at London Bridge and want to thank the police and all emergency services for their immediate response.”

Social media footage showed police detaining a man, with gunshots heard in some videos.

In 2017, at least eight people were killed in the London Bridge area when attackers ploughed a van into pedestrians before carrying out a knife attack at Borough Market.
