They were shot dead by armed police within eight minutes of the first emergency call.

A week on from the attack, officers who rushed to the scene have been describing the chaos, and how they helped people get to safety.

Inspector Jim Cole said: “As we got there, there were three or four armed police officers who were already on the scene at the entrance to the market.

“And somebody asked me to put in a cordon with my team to stop the public going in which seemed like a sensible thing to do.

“So as I was starting to arrange that, that’s when I heard quite a large amount of gunfire from literally just over our shoulder around the corner in the market. At that point it was almost pandemonium.

“People were running. I could see somebody was injured on the floor, by the pub at the corner.

“I was fortunate I had a police medic on board so I called the medic and I instructed him to go over to the entrance of the bar called Cats and Jammers on Southwark Street and set up a triage there with his equipment.

“At that point there were still lots and lots of shots ringing out. I didn’t know whether they were us, our chaps, or the bad guys.”
