The BBC has pulled The Andrew Marr show from its schedules this morning while ITV’s Peston on Sunday airs as normal following a terror attack in London last night.

A white van hit pedestrians on London Bridge at about 10pm on Saturday, before three men got out and stabbed people in nearby Borough Market. At the time of writing, seven people have died – as well as the three terrorists – and 48 have been injured.

To allow for rolling news coverage, The Andrew Marr Show – scheduled from 9am to 10am on BBC1 – was pulled. Marr’s interviews were instead broadcast as part of the news programme.

Meanwhile ITV have gone ahead with Peston on Sunday between 10am and 11am.

Most political parties have suspended national general election campaigning in light of the attack, but UKIP leader Paul Nuttall said he would continue because stopping is “precisely what extremists would want us to do”.
