One man has died and 10 others are injured after a van was rammed into worshippers in a terror attack near a London mosque, before the driver is said to have screamed: "I'm going to kill all Muslims".

The van driver - described by witnesses as a large white man - was detained by members of the public after the incident in Finsbury Park early on Monday that police said had "all the hallmarks of terrorism".

The white van ploughed into pedestrians who were helping an elderly worshipper who had collapsed in an area that was busy with people who had attended Ramadan night prayers.

Theresa May has vowed that "hatred and evil" of the kind seen in the terror attack on a north London mosque that left one man dead and 10 injured will never succeed.

Speaking after a meeting with security officials and ministers in the Government's Cobra emergency committee, the Prime Minister confirmed that police believe the attacker who drove into people near Finsbury Park Mosque had acted alone.

Mrs May condemned the attack as "every bit as sickening" as other recent terrorist outrages, praising the "bravery" of members of the public who detained the van driver - described by witnesses as a large white man - before police arrived at about 12.20am.

The pensioner they were helping later died. Police said he had already been receiving first aid from members of the public and it is not yet known if his death was caused by the attack. Eight people were taken to hospital and two more were treated for minor injuries outside the Muslim Welfare House, yards from Finsbury Park mosque. Police said all the casualties were Muslims.

A 48-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder over the incident in Seven Sisters Road. Metropolitan Police deputy assistant commissioner Neil Basu thanked members of the public for restraining the suspect as he said the attack had "all the hallmarks of terrorism".

This is exactly what the ISIS people want - so that they can win more innocent muslims to their side. May God forgive the dead old man, and make the world a better place for us all.
