A man was shot dead by British police and several people were stabbed with an object in Streatham in south London, SkyNews reported.
Police say it is a terror-related incident.
Many have shared a photo on Twitter of a man lying outside a chain store with his face down while a policeman with a pointed weapon is standing next to a black BMW with emergency lights, reports SkyNews.
Looks like this was another terror attack in London. Armed officers run away from the attacker after he was shot dead because he had a device strapped to him.— Mark (@markantro) February 2, 2020
