Nawaz Sharif impacted by the London Bridge Shooting incident

ISLAMABAD - Nawaz Sharif was impacted by the London Bridge Shooting incident.

Nawaz Sharif was on his way to an appointment at London Bridge Hospital Friday afternoon when the police sealed the area near the hospital because of shooting. Hassan Nawaz Sharif confirmed that he advised his father to return instead of trying to reach the hospital.

Nawaz Sharif was only five minutes away from the hospital when police locked down the area, said a source travelling in one of three cars with the former prime minister.

Armed police allegedly shot dead a man brandishing a knife on London Bridge as people were seen running away from the scene.

Witnesses said there appeared to be a fight on the southern side of the bridge with several men attacking another man shortly after 2pm today.

A BBC reporter said he could see a man lying on the ground but the situation was 'ongoing'.
