Finsbury Park: One dead and ten hurt in new London attack

One person has been killed and ten more injured after a white van driver screaming ‘I’m going to kill all Muslims’ ploughed into worshippers near a renowned north London mosque, in the latest terror attack to rock Britain.

A 48-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after the van mounted the pavement and veered into the congregation outside the Muslim Welfare House, near Finsbury Park Mosque, shortly after they finished Ramadan evening prayers.

Heroic bystanders wrestled the suspect – who was clean-shaven with curly hair and wore a white t-shirt – to the floor and pinned him down until officers arrived after he allegedly screamed ‘I want to kill all Muslims’, and ‘I did my bit’.

At the time of the attack, which was just after midnight, several people were heroically giving first aid to an elderly member of the public who had collapsed at the bus stop with a medical issue.

Today, police confirmed he was the man who had died. Metropolitan Police deputy assistant commissioner Neil Basu said it is not yet known if his death was caused by the terror attack but that it would form part of the investigation.
