Streatham incident statement from the Mayor of London

2 February 16:02

A man has been shot dead by armed police in Streatham following an incident that is being treated as terrorism-related. A number of people are believed to have been stabbed.

I am in close contact with the Met Commissioner and local representatives, and want to thank our police, security and emergency services staff for their swift and courageous response. They truly are the best of us.

Terrorists seek to divide us and to destroy our way of life - here in London we will never let them succeed.

Please follow @MetPoliceUK and @TfLTrafficNews for further information - and contact the police on 101 if you have any information regarding the incident.
