London attack: French students injured on bridge

Three French schoolchildren were among those injured when a vehicle hit people on London’s Westminster Bridge in a suspected terror attack, the French government has confirmed.

The foreign ministry said they had been on a school trip to London.

A newspaper in France’s Brittany region, Le Telegramme, identified them as teenage pupils from a private high school in Concarneau.

All three are in a critical condition, it said.

Witnesses the paper quoted said a pupil had ended up on the car bonnet.

Parents have begun gathering at the school, the Lycee Saint-Joseph.

Four people, including a police officer and a man believed to be the attacker, were killed and a total of 20 injured in Wednesday’s attack near the UK’s Houses of Parliament, Scotland Yard confirmed.
