Running

Karen Bosch was stuck on a bus on London Bridge with her one-year-old baby when she witnessed what she at first thought was a fight.

She explained to the BBC: "I was on the bus coming southbound we just pulled away from the bus stop when the bus came to a sudden stop because there were people running across the bridge into the road looking over their shoulders and filming behind them.

"A few men together, all with dark jackets. In the end I realised they were police officers with dark jackets and [they were] wrestling with one tall, bearded man. We were on the opposite carriageway four or five metres away."
