A man has been shot dead by police in south London after he attacked people on a busy high street.

Two people were injured in what police described as a "terrorist-related" incident.

Gunshots were heard on Streatham High Road just after 14:00 GMT on Sunday.

Some reports suggest a man entered a shop and started stabbing people. It appears he then left the shop and stabbed a woman, possibly a cyclist.

Witnesses reported hearing three gun shots and a man was seen lying on the floor, as armed police approached.

Police later said the scene had been "fully contained".

The London Ambulance Service treated a number of people at the scene. There was no further update on their condition.

A large police cordon stretches from Streatham Hill station and there is a heavy police presence in the area; helicopters are overhead.
