As armed officers with helicopter support moved in the Met Police tweeted: “A man has been shot by armed officers in Streatham. At this stage it is believed a number of people have been stabbed. The circumstances are being assessed; the incident has been declared as terrorist-related.”

In the shock video swarms of armed officers get out of a van and level their guns at a machete-wielding attacker.

Crowds of people on Streatham High Road are seen fleeing as police arrive.
