The knifeman, who was reportedly wearing a fake suicide vest, was shot dead by police after injuring at least 12 people, two of whom later died, on London Bridge this afternoon.

Passers-by had wrestled the assailant to the ground and disarmed him, before police took control of the situation and eventually shot the suspect dead.

 

Pictures show one large knife left near the suspect, whilst another was wrestled from him by a member of the public. The attacker had stabbed people in a number of locations before finally being apprehended on the bridge.

The attack comes 15 months after a terrorist ran over cyclists on the bridge in August 2018, and two years since an attack on London Bridge killed eight innocent people.
