London,England: Six people were on Saturday killed in a terrorist attack on London bridge in England.

A van rammed on pedestrians on the bridge before several attackers jumped out and started stabbing people with knives.

Another attack occured in Borough market, a few meters from the Londo bridge.

Three attackers were shot dead by police.

Eyewitnesses to the attack described seeing a van travelling at high speed along London Bridge, hitting pedestrians, before crashing close to the Barrowboy and Banker pub.

An eyewitness, Steven Gibbs, who was drinking in St Christopher’s Inn, just metres from the scene, told the BBC: “A black cab drove past and the driver shouted, ‘Terrorist attack, run!’

“I stood up to take a look and then all of a sudden there were gunshots. Lots of people were screaming.”

Steven was taken into the basement of the bar before the police came in and told everyone inside to run.

“I’ve never been so scared in my life,” he said.

Hundreds of people were left stranded after being unable to return to their homes and hotels.

Condemning the attack, Britain Prime Minister Theresa May said it was “time to say enough is enough”.

Controlled explosions were also carried out at the flat in Barking on Sunday morning.

It is the third terror attack in the UK in three months, following the car and knife attack in Westminster in March, which left five people dead.

Twelve people have been arrested after the London terror attack which left seven people dead and 48 injured, according to bbc.

The arrests in Barking, east London, followed a raid by police at a flat owned by one of the three attackers.
