One man has been shot by police, officials with the Metropolitan Police Service wrote on Twitter.
“It has been confirmed that people were injured in the attack,” London Mayor Sadiq Khan said in a statement. “My heart goes out to them, their families and all affected.”
The circumstances are unclear, but “as a precaution, we are currently responding to this incident as though it is terror-related,” police said.
The London Ambulance Service tweeted that they have “a number of crews at the scene,” declaring it a “major incident.”
Authorities have cordoned off the iconic bridge in central London, as well as the nearby Borough Market.
“We must — and we will — stay resolute in our determination to stand strong and united in the face of terror,” Khan added in his statement. “Those who seek to attack us and divide us will never succeed.”
In June 2017, eight were killed when a group of attackers plowed a van into people on London Bridge and then drove to Borough Market and stabbed several others.
