A van ploughed into worshippers outside a mosque in London on Sunday night, killing one person and injuring eight people.

Officers arrested one man after they were called shortly after midnight to the incident on Seven Sisters Road, near Finsbury Park station.

One man died and eight people were taken to hospital, Scotland Yard said. The  48-year-old driver was arrested by police after being detained by  members of public at the scene.

The London Ambulance Service said eight people were taken to hospital and a number of people were treated at the scene for minor injuries.

The apparent attack came shortly after worshippers had been attending evening prayers at the Muslim Welfare House.

Prime Minister Theresa May described it as a “terrible incident”, adding: “All my thoughts are with those who have been injured, their loved ones and the emergency services on the scene.”
