Several people have been injured after a van struck a crowd of pedestrians near a north London Mosque in what police have called a "major incident".

According to the Metropolitan Police, officers were called at 00.20 BST to an incident near Finsbury Park Mosque in Seven Sisters Road, north London.

Many of the victims are believed to have just left evening prayers after breaking the Ramadan fast. The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) said a van "intentionally" ran over worshippers.

London Ambulance Service deputy director of operations Kevin Bate said: "We have sent a number of ambulance crews, advance paramedics and specialist responses teams to the scene.


According to the latest unconfirmed reports about 10 pedestrians were hit when the rented van swerved onto the pavement and one person has been arrested.
