A woman has been stabbed to death in a horrific attack in Central London, with up to six more people reportedly rushed to hospital with injuries.
Metropolitan police were called to the area surrounding Russell Square pub, Imperial Hotel, at about 10:30pm local time after reports of a knife-wielding individual “injuring people”.
One person, presumably the suspect, was arrested at the site of the attack after being tasered by officers.
Ambulances are currently attending the scene, according to eyewitnesses.

As with any incident of this nature, terrorism isn’t being ruled out by police.
“Terrorism is one possibility being explored at this stage,” read a statement.
The condition of the six injured, and the details of their injuries, remains unknown.
We’ll update you as more information comes to hand.
