According to the BBC, witnesses have said a white van mounted the pavement and ran over pedestrians. There are reports there are armed police at the scene, and about five people are being treated for their injuries after being hit by the vehicle. BBC reporter Holly Jones, who was on the bridge at the time of the incident, said the van was driven by a man and was “probably travelling at about 50 miles an hour”. Ms. Jones said the van, which was travelling from the direction of central London, headed towards the south side of the river. She later reported seeing a man being arrested by police. She said he was handcuffed and had his shirt off. Video footage from inside a restaurant in the area close to the attack appears to show patrons being advised to get down on the floor should armed police enter.
