Police evidence gatherers in a street in Finsbury Park, north London, where one man has died, eight people taken to hospital and a person arrested after the van pictured struck pedestrians.

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.

Other footage showed a scene of chaos as people could be heard shouting and screaming amid the chaos, with bloodstains visible on the pavement.

Police initially released a brief statement on the incident. But in retaliation for the recent attacks in London.

"We are working closely with other members of the emergency services at the scene". The elderly man died at the scene, but it wasn't immediately clear whether he received additional injuries from the van or if his medical treatment was cut short by the incident. Early police caution about declaring the incident to be terrorist-related was interpreted by the community as discriminatory.

British Prime Minister Theresa May called the attack "a terrorist incident" and said that the suspected attacker had "targeted the ordinary and the innocent going about their daily lives", the BBC reported.

Communities Secretary Sajid Javid also visited the scene, and, outside the police cordon, comforted a woman who was visibly shaking.

Police arrested the van's driver, but were trying to determine whether the collision was accidental or deliberate.

To the north, Manchester was hit by a deadly attack May 22 when a suicide bomber killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert. Despite this, Stinchfield said that he would "like to get more information about what really happened there". "We stopped all forms of attack and abuse towards him that was coming to him from all angles". "A post mortem examination will be scheduled due course", Metropolitan Police said.

Citing witnesses, the Guardian reports that after deliberately targeting pedestrians, the driver "got out of the van and shouted "I want to kill Muslims" before onlookers pinned him to the ground".

Ali Habib, a 23-year-old student, said residents are angry that the mosque attack hasn't been portrayed in the same light as the other attacks across the country.

"Extra officers are on duty in the area to help reassure the local community", Police Commissioner Cressida Dick said. London's Mayor Sadiq Mayor Khan, the first Muslim to serve in that position, urged the public to focus on shared values and urged the city to stand together in an unprecedented period in the capital's history.

"Terrorists will not succeed in their attempts to divide us and make us live in fear", she continued.

Speaking to the media later on Monday, the imam downplayed his actions, insisting that he had not acted alone.

The crash occurred shortly after midnight Sunday night, at a time when the multiethnic neighbourhood was crowded with Muslims leaving the Finsbury Park mosque after Ramadan prayers.

"The time, he was planning for it, the target, he was planning for it, and the place - outside a mosque".

"This was an attack on Muslims near their place of worship. My thoughts are with those and the community affected by this bad event".

"This is a resilient city".

May added that "there has been far too much tolerance of extremism over many years".

Khan's warning about funding follows similar pleas from Jeremy Corbyn and senior police officers in the last week of the general election campaign, when the Manchester terror attack sparked calls for an end to police cuts.
