The Metropolitan Police now appear to be spreading throughout the area, hunting for suspected assailants. UK television has shown dozens of people being escorted out of police cordons near London Bridge with their hands over their heads.
UK Prime Minister Theresa May and US President Donald Trump have been informed of the incidents.
The UK is still reeling from a suicide bombing in Manchester earlier this month, which killed 22 people, many of them children, following a concert.
A third incident reported in the city's Vauxhall area is not related, the Metropolitan Police announced.
