The attacker’s motives remain unclear. Police have not yet ruled out terrorism, but media reports suggest that “there is no indication” of an extremist link.

The attack took place just hours after a convicted terrorist on parole stabbed five people near London Bridge, killing two. The attacker was subdued by passers-by and shot dead by police at the scene.
