The incident in #ExhibitionRoad #SouthKensington earlier is not being treated as a terror-related incident. It is a road traffic collision.

Eight people died in early June in an attack on London's nightlife District Borough Market and London Bridge.

In a bomb attack on visitors of a concert in Manchester in May, 22 people died. In March, an assassin on Westminster Bridge in London was purposefully snapped into pedestrians, before he stabbed a policeman on site of Parliament. Five people died.
