It appears that a number of people were stabbed, with police responding and then shooting the male suspect, before detaining him.

A tweet from the Met Police confirmed that emergency services attended the incident. The force had earlier stated that they were dealing with the 'early stages of an incident' and that people should follow directions from police officers at the scene.

A BBC reporter said that two shots were heard - they are believed to have been fired by police.

In images from the scene, a large lorry can be seen blocking the bridge, with Scotland Yard confirming that the 'early stages of an incident' is being dealt with.

Nearby Borough Market was also evacuated, with unconfirmed reports stating that a suspect was seen running through the area.

One Twitter user posted a video from a bus which appears to show police shooting at an individual who is lying on the floor.

A reporter told BBC News: "Just a few minutes ago I was walking across London Bridge on the south bank to the north bank of the bridge.

"There appeared to be a fight going on on the other side of the bridge, with several men attacking one man."

The London Ambulance Service said it had crews at the scene and sniffer dogs have been seen in the locality.
