She said she was told by her staff members that at least three people had been stabbed.

European security official says it is too soon to say whether incidents around London Bridge are militant attacks.

They are also at an incident in the Vauxhall area.

The UK was the victim of a terror attack on Saturday night after a van ploughed into crowds on London Bridge and attackers stabbed people bars and restaurants in the British capital.

There are reported to be multiple casualties and more than one fatality.

Terrorism struck at the heart of London after a vehicle veered off the road and mowed down pedestrians on London Bridge and gunshots rang out amid reports of knife attacks at nearby Borough Market.

Shortly after that, officers said there had been reports of stabbings at Borough Market.

Police declared the events at two locations - London Bridge and Borough Market - were terrorist related.

Police said they were dealing with an incident but gave no further details.

Holly Jones, a BBC reporter who was on the bridge at the time, said five people were being treated for injuries.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has called an emergency Cabinet meeting for tomorrow after labeling the attacks a "potential act of terrorism".

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

London Bridge is closed both ways Tfl said, warning the public to avoid thearea. 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.

The Sun newspaper reported that two explosions were heard outside the paper's offices near London Bridge. "We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety", Trump wrote.

Witnesses also reported seeing people being stabbed by at least one man. "He hit about two people in front of me and then three behind", she said.

"Then three men got out with long blades, 12 inches long and went randomly along Borough High Street stabbing people at random".

According to reports from several different news outlets, some sort of incident at the London Bridge has left people injured.

"Then people from the ground floor were moved downstairs to the basement, and then we heard gunfire outside and some people saw armed police patrolling the area around the restaurant".

It also comes less than two weeks after a suicide bomber killed 22 people at a pop concert by US singer Ariana Grande in Manchester in northern England.

"People insane, they just with the knife, they push the people, they kill it, like they don't care", he said.

Three major London hospitals said on Sunday that they were on lockdown after attacks near London Bridge late on Saturday in which up to seven people are feared dead.

His friend Giovanni said he contacted police and the ambulance services, which arrived within around two minutes.

The van swerved into oncoming lanes before hitting a bus stop and coming to a stop, Roberts said.
