Dramatic video has emerged online showing the moment the London terror attackers were shot dead by police officers after they went on a knifing rampage.
In the footage you can see a pedestrian walking through Borough Market when one of the attackers approaches the man and lunges at him with a knife, he is then joined by another terrorist who also races to attack the victim, finally a third terrorist approaches from the far left and attempts to join in the attack.
But moments after they begin their attack on the man, armed police arrive on the scene. The knifemen then charge towards the cops before being shot dead by officers. It took just eight minutes from the moment the police were on the scene to the killing of the three suspects.
Responsibility for the attack was claimed by Islamic state and the attackers have been named as Khuram Shazad Butt, Rachid Redoune and Youssef Zaghba. Eight people died and 48 others were injured during the atrocity.
