    I said many weeks ago that the MSM is actually now Social Media & it is far more 'dangerous' than other channels. People are obsessed with the BBC but they are veritable saints compared to 'online'.

    While I’d agree, there’s just been another one so it’s just a little bit harder to rule it out as fvkwittery at the moment.

    Any idea if it is Islamist, Brexiter, or just random nut-job?

    Police not saying at this time. My daughter was in London Bridge. She’s fine but spooked obviously.

    There’s a fair bit of footage on Twitter of the attacker being restrained (apparently by the public, one of which removed a very large knife) and then the police arriving and appearing to have shot the person on the ground, but obviously no way to tell motive, context or anything beyond this. Sadly knife crime isn’t at all rare in That London at present, so could be anything really.

    The BBC is reporting that a man has been shot by Police on London Bridge. There are reports of other people having been injured. They are "treating it as they would if it were a terrorist attack as a precaution" which is not to say that they think it is at this stage.

    Others are free to draw their own conclusions of course.

    Film of attacker wrestling with man on ground, police pull the man away from his attacker then shoot him dead.

    Just arrived home on a Boris bike. I was at Blackfriars, less than half a mile away. So many police vehicles racing in all directions, lots of helicopter noise.

    Police confirm it to be terrorist related. The man who was shot is dead. The area is locked down by Police.
