While a lot of the details of the attack are still unclear, Assistant Commissioner of Met Police, Mark Rowley has now confirmed that all three of the attackers were shot dead at the scene.

He said: ‘The suspects were wearing what looked like explosive vests but these were later established to be hoaxes.’

Before adding: ‘We are treating this as a terrorist incident and a full investigation is already under way.’ 

The incident is the third terror attack in the UK in three months following the car and knife attack in Westminster in March, killing five people, and the Manchester bombing at Ariana’s concert which left 22 people dead.

Prime Minister Theresa May has described Saturday night’s as ‘dreadful’ and later on Sunday she will chair a meeting of the government’s emergency Cobra committee.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has also called it ‘a deliberate and cowardly attack on innocent Londoners’.
