3 of the attackers are dead, shot by London MET Police. 6 victims killed in the terrorist incident, at least 20 injured.
“THE CAB DRIVER TURNED INTO THE MARKET AND WE GOT STUCK RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SHOOTING WE WERE IN A ONE-WAY STREET AND COULDN’T TURN AROUND.
THERE WERE LOADS OF SHOTS BEING FIRED. TWO PEOPLE WERE ON THE FLOOR BEHIND THE CHURCH WITH TWO OR THREE PEOPLE LEANING OVER THEM.
About 50 police were pointing guns at us – the cab driver had the laser pointed right at them, our hands were up, we were trying to get out so they shooed us away.
A man was coming out of the restaurant, he had a napkin on his neck with blood pouring out, there was another man lying on the floor. I don’t know if he was in the recovery position or dead.
We weaved through little side streets where the police were telling us to go to Blackfriars Bridge and we could see people looking over the side; people had maybe jumped over the bridge.
A couple of times we had to lie down on the floor of the cab because of the shooting around us.” – Borough Market
“AT AROUND 22:00 AN INJURED WOMAN CAME INTO THE PUB SEEKING ASSISTANCE. SHE WAS BLEEDING HEAVILY FROM THE NECK – IT APPEARED THAT HER THROAT HAD BEEN CUT. PEOPLE SOUGHT TO STEM THE BLEEDING AND THE PUB WAS CLOSED.
Outside the pub, emergency services were performing CPR on a further individual. From there, we were instructed to move along by armed police. They sought refuge with some others at Bill’s restaurant in the market.
Police instructed us to wait in the kitchen whilst they swept the surrounding area. We were then ordered to leave the restaurant by armed police – we were then escorted at running speed away from the area.” – Eyewitness, London Bridge
