1 arrested after vehicle strikes pedestrians in London

He did not hear the crash, but he realized something was happening when there was a huge police response. About 10 people were injured and one person is fighting for their life.

"We have been informed that a van has run over worshippers as they left #FinsburyPark Mosque".

"When islamist terrorists attack we rightly seek out hate preachers who spur them on".

The Finsbury Park mosque was associated with extremist ideology for several years after the 9/11 attacks in the United States but was shut down and reorganized.

May says police are treating the crash as a potential terrorist attack.

On March 22, a man drove a rented vehicle into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in London and stabbed a policeman to death before being shot dead. Police said a man who was driving the auto has been arrested and taken to a hospital as a precaution.

Police, including armed officers, could be seen manning a wide cordon around the area.

"I think there are people dead and there are injured people as well", he said.

"During the night, ordinary British citizens were set upon while they were going about their lives, completing their night worship", he said. It appears from eyewitness accounts that the perpetrator was motivated by Islamophobia. "Eight people injured were taken to three separate hospitals".

The force said the investigation of the incident is being carried out by the Counter Terrorism Command.

Britain has been racked by a series of terrorist attacks in recent weeks.

"Everyone was shouting "a van's hit people".

Terror on and near the London Bridge left at least eight people dead and wounded nearly 50 others on June 3.

London police and emergency services went to the scene on the street seven Sisters.

Police said the driver had also been taken to hospital and would receive a mental health assessment.

Opened in 1994, Finsbury Park Mosque is an unassuming five-story redbrick building in residential north London, close to Arsenal Football Club's Emirates Stadium.

Vanzella said the north London community is very diverse, with churches of various faiths within blocks of one another.

Prime Minister Theresa May issued a statement saying she would be chairing an emergency meeting on Monday morning and adding: "All my thoughts are with the victims, their families and the emergency services on the scene".

London Ambulance Service said it sent "a number of resources" to the scene.

One man, who gave his name as Mohin, said his cousin was caught up in the incident.

Mr Corbyn said: "I am totally shocked at the incident at Finsbury Park tonight. One has been arrested and two ran away", he added.

The Met has not characterised the incident as a terror attack as yet, as it did not in the hours after the London Bridge and Borough Market incidents.

Mr Norris said, "there was definitely a guy who was dead straight in the road and another still trapped under the van".

Further details were not immediately available.

The Muslim Council of Britain said the vehicle had hit people as they were leaving Finsbury Park mosque.

The attack took place just after midnight outside the Muslim Welfare House, which houses a mosque, on the Seven Sisters Road in the northern part of the city, the Guardian reported.

Twitter user Didier, who says he was at the scene at the time the incident unfolded, posted a video showing the arrest of a suspected attacker by police.
