The Metropolitan Police on Friday said two members of the public were killed in a terror attack in London, while three others were still being treated.
Cressida Dick told a press conference the stabbing attack, which has been declared a terrorist incident, began at an event at Fishmonger’s Hall.
Within five minutes of being called officers confronted the suspect – who was shot dead by police – she said.
The suspect was wearing what is thought to have been a hoax explosive device.
He was a former prisoner, sources have told the BBC.
