This man was walking behind us on the other side of London Bridge when the attack began. He ran through traffic and jumped the central partition to tackle the attacker with several others. We ran away but looks like he disarmed him. Amazing bravery @BBCNews #londonbridge pic.twitter.com/XdWRZyLwVN— George Robarts (@GeorgeRobarts) November 29, 2019
What a horrid incident on the London Bridge.— Brigitte Gabriel (@ACTBrigitte) November 29, 2019
We have not confirmed the cause of the attack yet – many are reporting it as a terrorist attack.
Praying for everyone’s safety in London. Stabbings are on the rise!
Whatever happened on London Bridge, one thing is now clear: the @metpoliceuk response time was incredibly fast. Well done to them and all the emergency services.— Michael Fabricant 🇬🇧 (@Mike_Fabricant) November 29, 2019
