Tens of thousands evacuated or stranded following London Bridge attack
Today’s terror attack on London Bridge evoked memories of the 2017 tragedy for the tens of thousands of people who were evacuated or left stranded. A suspect was shot dead by armed officers on the north side of the bridge after several people were stabbed. The Met later declared it a terrorist incident. Officers immediately shut all routes leading to the bridge from the capital’s financial district. Thousands of people came streaming down Cannon Street as police officers, some armed and with dogs, roared: “Clear the road!”. The cordon was gradually moved further away from the bridge.

While there, I saw people drop off flowers and hug officers.
My thoughts and prayers are with Carr’s family and the police department.
The 27-year-old had been waiting for his partner in the car park when the shooting happened.
Police chief Mike Reynolds told reporters the gunman's motivation was unknown, but said: "All I know is that this was a cowardly act. I have no information that leads me to believe that he targeted this officer specifically. He was looking for an officer to kill."
Emergency medical personnel responded to the scene, but the officer and suspected gunman died of their injuries.
The suspect has been named as 35-year-old London Phillips, who lived locally.
It is believed that Fayetteville police had a "brief history" with Phillips, as officers had received reports in December 2018 about him impersonating a police officer.
Officer Carr had worked at the Fayetteville police department from April 2017. He is understood to have been assigned as a patrol officer in the city's entertainment district.
He has been hailed a "hero" and his colleagues have said he served with dedication and professionalism.
The FBI and the Washington County Sheriff's Office are investigating.
