"So we would like people to allow the police and the intelligence agencies to get on with their work and to remain calm". The US president also seems to think the attack speaks against gun control.

Trump went after London Mayor Sadiq Khan for saying there was "no reason to be alarmed".

German Chancellor Angela Merkel voiced her sympathy. There were three of them ... the ambulance came and took them away.

A taxi driver told the BBC that three men got out of the van with long knives and "went randomly along Borough High Street stabbing people". Assistant Commissioner for Specialist Ops, Mark Rowley, said the assailants were wearing what looked like explosive vests which upon further investigation appeared to be fake.

She confirmed that the attackers did not share the same terror network but the London Bridge attackers may have been "inspired" by the Manchester incident.

May praised the police and emergency services for their quick work and pointed out that United Kingdom police had disrupted five credible attacks since the Westminster attack in March, in which a man drove a vehicle into pedestrians on a sidewalk near the Houses of Parliament, injuring more than 50 and killing four.

"Then I tried to help people, wounded people".

A major incident was ongoing in central London on Saturday night, with reports of a van hitting pedestrians on the London Bridge and stabbings in a nearby area.

Police tweeted a warning telling people in the area to run to safety, hide and then call police if it is safe to do so. The local administration is working with the rescue services to find people who may have fallen into the River Thames, reported Reuters.

Police said Sunday among those injured in the attack were a British Transport police officer and an off-duty Metropolitan police officer. "We don't yet know the full details, but this was deliberate and cowardly attack on innocent Londoners and visitors to our city enjoying their Saturday night", he said according to BBC. "We are with you".

"We need to be smart, vigilant and tough", Trump tweeted.
