METROPOLITAN Police Commissioner Cressida Dick has confirmed this evening that two people were killed and a number of others were injured in today’s terrorist attack on London Bridge.
Dick reaffirmed that the attack was being treated as a terrorist incident and asked for the public’s help in combating extremism. The Commissioner added that the ideology behind terrorism will never succeed.
Earlier, the Metropolitan Police said the man with a hoax device strapped to his chest was shot dead by police officers, with footage filmed at the scene showing the suspect being wrestled to the ground by members of the public on the northern end of London Bridge.
