Update at 3.45am 4/6/17: 

We can confirm a British Transport Police officer was injured as he was responding to the terrorist incident at London Bridge last night (Saturday 3 June 2017).

The officer was on duty and one of the first on the scene, after he responded to calls for help from the public.

He received injuries to his head, face and leg, which, at this time, are believed to be serious but not life threatening.

He is currently being treated in a central London hospital and his family are with him while he receives treatment.

He has been visited this evening by Chief Constable Paul Crowther and Divisional Commander Chief Supt Martin Fry.

At this stage, we are not aware of any other BTP officers being injured in the incident.

Chief Constable Paul Crowther said:

“Again, our thoughts and sympathies are with those who have been injured in and affected by this horrific incident, including one of our own.

“We have implemented our strategic command structure and are working closely with the Metropolitan Police Service and other agencies in these early stages of the investigation.

“We would ask the public to remain calm, vigilant and alert, and to report any suspicious behaviour to the police on 0800 789 321.”
