Three attackers drove a van through a group of pedestrians on London Bridge Saturday night and then stabbing others nearby.

Seven people have been killed and at least 48 injured after a van ploughed into pedestrians on London Bridge and multiple suspects rampaged with knives in what appeared to be a coordinated attack on the capital on Saturday.

May noted that the London attack was the third to hit Britain in as many months. May said the vote would go ahead as planned on Thursday.

"It is time to say, enough is enough", she said.

He continued, "She managed to hold the door for a few seconds, but they overpowered her".

Ariana Grande, the US singer whose May 22 concert in Manchester, England was hit by a suicide bombing that killed 22 people and wounded 116, tweeted "Praying for London" after Saturday's attacks.

The first incident took place on London Bridge, where witnesses described seeing a white van mounting the sidewalk and injuring at least six people at about 10:30 p.m. Hours earlier the area packed with bars and restaurants around the foodie magnet of Borough Market, had been a scene of panic, as people barricaded themselves into pubs and restaurants or fled through the streets. They did not say if officers fired the shots. There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Pettit said: "If it is, I am completely shocked".

One of the attackers was also wearing an Arsenal shirt.

"They are bound together by the single evil ideology of Islamist extremism that preaches hatred, sows division, and promotes sectarianism", she said. "She says she doesn't know where her boyfriend is", she said.

Prime Minister Theresa May's party said there will be no national campaigning Sunday.

May said the men attacked "innocent and unarmed civilians" in crowded Borough Market with blades and knives.

The investigation is being led by the Counter Terrorism Command, and police have asked for images or footage of the incident to be passed onto officers. Forensic investigators could be seen working on the bridge, where buses and taxis stood abandoned. Grande and other stars are scheduled to perform a benefit concert for victims Sunday night.

He said May and Corbyn "will both say they are not playing politics with this, but they both are". The BBC showed a photograph of two possible attackers shot by police, one of whom had canisters strapped to his body.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in a statement that she learned of the attacks with "sadness and dismay" and said Germany would stand by Britain's side against terrorism.

Mr Chigbo, who spoke with the attacker on Saturday, said: "We were having a general conversation because I am in the process of moving house at the moment".

Speaking to reporters Sunday morning, Dick said she had "heard truly remarkable stories of extraordinarily fearless actions by officers on and off duty who were first on the scene".

"Started shift taking photos with children playing on the South Bank". He said voting in London would continue with reinforced security.

London's mayor, Sadiq Khan, urged Londonders not to be alarmed by the increased police presence across the city following the attack.
