LONDON - British police said they were responding to an incident in the Vauxhall area of London after an incident involving a vehicle on London Bridge earlier on Saturday.

Police also said they fired shots after reports of stabbings in the Borough Market area which is located close to London Bridge. 

British police rushed to an incident on London Bridge after witnesses said a van ploughed into pedestrians and one woman told Reuters she saw people who may have had their throats cut.

British Transport Police said casualties were reported after an incident that may have involved a van and a knife attack, the BBC said, while the London Ambulance Service said it was sending multiple resources to the incident.

Police said armed officers were also responding to an incident in the nearby Borough Market area of the city.

One witness told Reuters that she saw what appeared to be three people with knife wounds and possibly their throats cut at London Bridge. Reuters was unable to immediately verify her account.
