Trump argues for travel ban after attacks hit London

They did, however, retweet a statement from the London Ambulance service, which said in part, "We have taken at least 20 patients to six hospitals across London".

The attacks come days ahead of a June 8 election and less than two weeks after a suicide bomber killed 22 people at a pop concert by U.S. singer Ariana Grande in Manchester in northern England.

Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed the attack "is being treated as a potential act of terrorism" and said her thoughts were with "those who are caught up in these awful events".

Police have said there has been "more than one" person killed on London Bridge.

Police confirmed London Bridge and Borough Market to be terror not long after Prime Minister Theresa May said the incidents were being treated as a "potential act of terrorism". "So we have to go on the original advice that they put out some time ago to the public, which was "run, hide, tell"," a Sky reporter said.

The Metropolitan Police in London have responded to a situation that they are "dealing with an incident" on the London Bridge.

The British Prime Minister's office said May was being regularly updated on the situation, and the White House said President Trump has been briefed.

Tamara Alcolea, 24, who works as a bartender in a pub called Southwark Rooms, which is near the bridge, said the first indication that something was wrong was when she heard that someone had been stabbed.in the proximity of London Bridge.

Saturday night's "terrible incident" will be the focus of a meeting of the United Kingdom government's Cobra emergency committee, Xinhua quoted May's office as saying. After that attack, Britain's official threat level from terrorism was raised to "critical", meaning an attack may be imminent.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said United States president Donald Trump had been briefed on the incident by his national security team.

Authorities have not said what caused the incident.

"He swerved right 'round me and then hit about five or six people".

The London Bridge attack is reminiscent of the March 22 Westminster Bridge terror attack in the same city, which killed five people and injured more than 50. Officers have then responded to reports of stabbings in #BoroughMarket.

Witnesses described a van speeding into pedestrians on London Bridge and then a knife-wielding man sprinting towards a bar packed with revellers enjoying a Saturday night out. Then the police came in and told us to run.

British Transport Police confirmed at 23:15 that there were "a number" of casualties and said there was an "incident that possibly involved a van and a knife". Earlier in the evening, we understand, as you were just mentioning to listeners, that a van jumped the curb.

Ms Jones said police were on the scene within two minutes, quickly followed by ambulances. Twitter users began uploading footage of police on the scene.

A witness told CNN said individuals at the market were stabbed by a man with a "massive knife". "We were eventually led out of the bar and some kind people working in a hotel let us come in to use the bathroom and to give us water".

United States pop star Ariana Grande, whose concert in Manchester was the scene of last week's fatal terror attack, tweeted: "Praying for London". "It looked to me that the van was aiming for the people".

On May 22, a British suicide bomber killed 22 people and injured dozens at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.
