MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Two New Hampshire students studying in London say they found themselves caught up in the chaos in the van and knife attack that started on the London Bridge.

Hayley Norman, of Littleton, tells WMUR-TV (https://bit.ly/2qPCp7i) she was in walking distance of the bridge when the attacks happened Saturday night. She says a bunch of police officers “just swarmed from nowhere” and started screaming at people to get back inside or go somewhere safe.

As the sun came over London on Sunday, both Norman and Steven Murnane, of Manchester, described the mood as quiet, with people going on with their day as usual. Some people left flowers along the sidewalk.

Murnane, who is due home in July, said he thinks it goes back to World War II, “when they coined the term, ‘keep calm and carry on.’”
