London Bridge Closed Following Reports That Vehicle Plowed Into Pedestrians

The Trump administration announced that it "strongly disagrees" with a federal appeals court decision refusing to reinstate the ban.

The President later tweeted: "Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U".

An armed Police officer looks through his weapon on London Bridge in London, Saturday, June 3, 2017.

Meanwhile, a witness told CNN that a man with a "massive knife" entered a restaurant in Borough Market and stabbed two people.

"We have declared a major incident and continue to work closely with other members of the emergency services".

Police are also responding to an incident in the Vauxhall area, police said at 11.45pm.

A third police unit was sent to the Vauxhall area.

Police have responded to three incidents in London on Saturday, June 3.

British Prime Minister Theresa May says the incident "is being treated as a potential act of terrorism". There was a BBC reporter who just happened to be on the bridge this evening, and what she said - her name is Holly Jones.

Both incidents were confirmed as terrorism. "Than k you to the emergency services".

After the Manchester bombing May 22, when a suicide bomber blew himself up at the end of a concert by Ariana Grande and killed 22 and wounded dozens, the threat level in Britain was raised to critical, indicating that a terrorist attack was highly likely. An attacker stabbed a police officer, of course, in Manchester.

"People started running and screaming, and the van crashes into the railing behind".

The force has tweeted a warning telling people in the area to run to safety, hide and then call police if it is safe to do so.

Applebee told his customers to go to the back of the restaurant.

She said: "Our hearts are with the families and loved ones of the victims".

The US embassy in London tweeted: "Please avoid the area and monitor local news/@metpoliceuk for updates".

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".

The van hit several people, knocking one person about 20 feet into the air, he said.

"This is a fast moving investigation", May said in a statement. In March, five people were killed in London when a vehicle mowed down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge. And Borough Market attracts tons of people who come there for lots of food and drink - a very popular place on weekends, especially on a Saturday night. "We have strengthened our armed police presence".

Witnesses have reported seeing injured people on the ground on the bridge.

"Now the area is completely closed with police cars going one way and ambulances going the other", he told Reuters.

Witnesses reported a vehicle hitting pedestrians and seeing injured people on the ground on the bridge.

Witnesses said they saw a white van struck pedestrians on London Bridge.

British police say they are dealing with an "incident" on London Bridge.

Another eyewitness tells Sky he heard a burst of gunfire during the incident. He said he threw chairs, glasses and bottles at the attackers in a bid to stop them.

The first report was of a van ploughing into pedestrians on London Bridge.
