A man has been shot dead by police in south London after he attacked people on a busy high street. Gunshots were heard on Streatham High Road just after 14:00 GMT on Sunday.

Some reports suggest a man entered a shop and started stabbing people. It appears he then left the shop and stabbed a woman, possibly a cyclist.

Witnesses reported hearing three gun shots and a man was seen lying on the floor, as armed police approached. Three people were injured in what police described as a “terrorist-related” incident. One person is in a life-threatening condition.

London Ambulance Service said it treated three people for injuries at the scene and all were taken to hospital. One had minor injuries and the third person’s condition is not life-threatening.

Police later said the scene had been “fully contained”.

A large police cordon stretches from Streatham Hill station and there is a heavy police presence in the area; helicopters are overhead.
