Simon Thompson told Sky News that he was just outside Borough Market when he saw crowds fleeing. "We saw a few being knocked over".

The vehicle is reported to have mounted the pavement at the scene Saturday evening, Mirror reported in its website.

"After that (came) the whole shooting match of ambulances and police". He said a waitress was stabbed in the throat and a man was stabbed in the back.
