There is no terror threat in Poland, the country's Interior Minister Mariusz Błaszczak has said following a terrorist attack in London which killed seven and injured nearly 50.

Błaszczak added that Poland was different from Western Europe because “we are not engaged in multicultural policy or political correctness”.

“The current government changed the policy of the [previous government], which was based on an open door for refugees. As such, all those mistakes which ended in tragic events in the west of Europe did not affect Poland,” Błaszczak said.

He added that Europe's migration policy should be changed.

The head of Poland's governing Law and Justice (PiS) party, Jarosław Kaczyński, said that a war is being waged against Europe.

“Either Europe … will get up off its knees and start to seriously consider counteraction measures, but that means rejecting political correctness, or these types of incidents will continue,” Kaczyński said, adding that Poland should expand its armed forces.

A delivery truck ploughed into a group of pedestrians on London Bridge on Saturday night before driving on to the nearby Borough Market where three attackers got out of the vehicle to knife passers-by.

The three attackers were shot by police, bringing the death toll to ten. Forty-eight were injured. (vb/pk)
