Sounds like sterling work by the police.
I wouldn't want to deal with somebody with the potential to explode and take you with them.

Absolutely.

I expect the IOPC will be investigating these brave officers for years to come, though....

Update: So far it's unclear how the major incident unfolded but the Met Police are treating the incident as 'terror-related' with numerous people confirmed to be stabbed.

Welcome to London boys!
But as someone who lives in London, I thankfully don't like in those high risk hot-spots for a terrorist attack

Until the full motive is confirmed we can only speculate (within reason) why this has happened.

It's not confirmed whether this attack originated on London Bridge itself, where the 2017 terror attack happened, or inside a nearby building. Eyewitnesses say that people were running out of a building with blood and wounds.

It was only earlier in the month that the terror level was reduced. It's also Black Friday. Coincidence or planned?

Police statement said they were called to a nearby premises so that would lead one to believe it did not start on the bridge.

That's what is confusing.

At this point it's almost undoubtedly a terror incident but why did the suspect attack people inside a building?

Probably a shop with a high density of people since it is Black Friday.

Possibly, I can't recall if there is a shop directly on the north side of the bridge.

Speculation is dangerous.
So are knives. And getting shot.
