Armed police were called to the scene and within eight minutes, the three attackers were shot dead.
Rowley also said the attackers were wearing fake explosives.
Holly Jones, a BBC reporter at the bridge when the incident happened, said a van had swerved off the road into a crowd of pedestrians
“A white van driver came speeding – probably about 50mph – veered of the road into the crowds of people who were walking along the pavement,” she told BBC News.
“He swerved right round me and then hit about five or six people. He hit about two people in front of me and then three behind.
“I’d say there are about four severely injured people.
“They all have paramedics assisting them at the moment.”
A Downing Street spokesman said: “The Prime Minister is in contact with officials and is being regularly updated on the incident at London Bridge.”
One man at the scene tweeted tonight: “Horrific scene at London Bridge… bodies strewn over the pavement. B&Q van mounted the pavement. He added: “I feel sick.”
