Man shot by police during ‘serious incident’ in London


Gemma Daly, 31, from Whitstable, said she heard screams and “a big bang”, which she believes was a gunshot.

She said she heard police sirens immediately, before emergency services arrived shortly after.

“Police were on a man on the side of the bridge,” she said, adding that he was “clearly injured”.

She added that “a lot of people” were working on the man and had “taken off his clothes” before he was put on a stretcher.
