London vehicle hits pedestrians, police say 'number of casualties'

Counter-terrorism officers have joined regular police looking at the incident which is in its early stages. "There has been one person arrested".

"The driver of the van - a man aged 48 - was found detained by members of public at the scene and then arrested by police in connection with the incident".

Someone in the crowd yelled to others not to harm the man while he was taken into custody.

Abdulrahman Saleh Alamoudi said he was among a group of people helping an elderly worshipper who had fallen down when the van swerved towards them.

There has been some confusion as to whether the attack took place outside Finsbury Park Mosque or Muslim Welfare House as they are very close together, but it has been confirmed that Muslim Welfare House was the scene of the tragic incident.

One witness told CNN it was clear that the attacker at Finsbury Park had deliberately targeted Muslims. It said its prayers are with the victims.

"We saw lots of people shouting and lots of people injured", said David Robinson, 41, who arrived just after the accident.

"During the night, ordinary British citizens were set upon while they were going about their lives, completing their night worship", Secretary General of the Council, Harun Khan, said in a statement. Eight of the injured were taken to hospitals and the rest were treated at the scene.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan, the first Muslim to serve in that position, said extra police would be deployed.

The incident comes at a time when emotions are high in England, where there have been several recent terrorist attacks in recent weeks.
