London - Police have responded to what is being reported as a terrorist attack at London Bridge.

A van plowed into an estimated 20 people at London Bridge and there are unconfirmed reports of stabbings and gunshots, according to The Sun.

While details are still not clear Daily Mail is calling it a 'terrorist attack.' Eyewitnesses said that the van appeared to be traveling 50 MPH when it veered off of the road.

The sun reports that CPR is being given to multiple 'stabbing victims.'

One witness told The Sun, “We had to run,” “There was loads of shooting.”

Police have only announced only: 'We are dealing with an incident on London Bridge, when we have more information we will update this twitter feed.'

UPDATE: This has been confirmed as a terrorist attack with a witness saying three suspects exited the van and started stabbing people to death at the south end of the bridge.

Matropolitan PD tweeted an update: "As well as #LondonBridge officers have also responsed to an incident in #BoroughMarket. We have armed police at the scenes."

The market is near the bridge and it's not clear if there is another incident going on or if they are distinguishing the stabbings from the vehicle plowing through the crowd.

A cab driver told LBC,
"They just had these long blades, about 12 inches long. They just went randomly along Borough High Street stabbing people.
"A young girl got stabbed in the chest, she was laying there - it's so sad.
"I thought, 'I'm gonna try and hit him, I'm gonna try and knock him down'. I spun the cab round, I was about to ram one of them, but he side-stepped and three police officers came running towards them with their batons drawn."

UPDATE: Metropolitan Police say that they are now responding to a third scene: "Officers are now responding to an incident in the #Vauxhall area"
