Watch Video – London Bridge & Borough Market terrorist attacks aftermath

ViewsHeadlines Desk,

London has been shaken once again by terror attack that took the lives of six innocent people. Coming merely two weeks after gruesome terror attack in Manchester during Ariana concert, London has been completely shaken.

Three people armed with knives first plowed a van into pedestrians in the London Bridge and then took out knives and started stabbing people randomly. This is the second such attack in London over the past few months.

Authorities claim that 48 other people have been admitted to different hospitals with minor and major injuries. Several people are reported to be severely injured and there are chances that the death toll may go up.

The three terrorists, whose identity is yet to be revealed were killed on the spot. Reports suggest that the first incident was reported at the London Bridge when a van swerved off the road into a crowd of pedestrians.

A BBC report quoting eyewitnesses said that a white van driver came speeding veered off the road into the crowds of people who were walking along the pavement, an eye-witness was quoted as saying by BBC. If that was not enough, another report came from Borough Market on the south bank of the Thames where three men wielding knives 10 inches long began attacking passersby, even entering one restaurant to attack night diners.

London Ambulance Service in a statement said, “We took 48 patients to five hospitals across London and treated a number of others at the scene for minor injuries…We declared a major incident and continue to work closely with other members of the emergency services at the scene”.

Reports suggest that a British Transport Police official too was injured in the attack. He was seriously injured after being stabbed as he responded to the incident, but his condition was not said to be life- threatening. The three assailants shot dead by police were wearing fake suicide vests, police said today.

Mark Rowley, the counter terrorism agency’s top official while talking about the attack said, “The suspects were wearing what looked like explosive vests but these were later established to be hoaxes”.

Following the incidents, a large area of central London remained cordoned off and police told people to avoid the area, leaving tourists and revellers struggling to get home. Bursts of gunfire echoed through the streets – likely from armed police – and at least three blasts rang out as police performed controlled explosions. It was the third terror attack to strike the UK this year, after a man drove a car into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in March and the bomb attack on an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester two weeks ago.

In a statement, Prime Minister Theresa May, who is facing a tough elections merely a few days from now said, “terrible incident” in London is being treated as a “potential act of terrorism…Following updates from police and security officials, I can confirm that the terrible incident in London is being treated as a potential act of terrorism”.
