She said: “There were loads of people just running, I thought it was a fire alarm or something, and then I saw two girls from my office who told me not to go back there.
“I asked what had happened, and they said they had heard gunshots and now everyone is running.”
BBC correspondent John McManus told BBC News that he had heard several gunshots on London Bridge.
“There appeared to be a fight going on on the other side of the bridge, with several men attacking one man,” he said.
“Police then quickly arrived, including armed police, and then a number of shots were fired at this man,” Mr McManus told BBC News.
