Eight of the injured were taken to hospitals and the rest were treated at the scene.

Five residents identified images of the man being arrested as their neighbour, Osborne, who according to reports is originally from Somerset. His motive is not yet clear but anti-Muslim terrorism is suspected.

"Such incidents, which strike at Muslims and undermine the human values which ensure peaceful cohabitation must be prevented in future, irrespective of faith or nationality", it said, offering "the most honest condolences to the victim's families for this violent and distressing incident". "My prayers are with the victims and their families", read the statement.

Osborne also appears to have a Twitter account, which he has never used to send his own tweets, instead monitoring 32 other users, including Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen, the leaders of the far right party Britain First. "I am a Muslim". He waved to onlookers from the back of the police van as he was led away.

"He just came into all of us".

"He tried to kill a lot of people so obviously it's a militant attack. He's got problems, but he's also got a wife and four kids, and we can't talk to his partner Sarah, she's somewhere safe", she said. "I was shocked, shocked, shocked".

A neighbour talking to media said: "I know him".

An elderly man died after the attack.

The Muslim Welfare House released a statement calling for calm.

The Finsbury Park Mosque was once a notorious hub for radical Islamists but has changed markedly in recent years under new management.

Monday morning, the Muslim Welfare House headlined its website with this message: "All of us at Muslim Welfare House sends our thoughts and prayers to the victims and those injured in the major incident at Finsbury Park. I've been in touch with the mosques, police and Islington council regarding the incident", Corbyn wrote. "What's happened here is bad, but it's ironic just a few hours before they had been gathering with members of the Christian and Jewish community in support of the Jo Cox Foundation".

Community leader Abjol Miah said anti-Muslim sentiment has increased lately but was optimistic about the possibility of people coming together.

"We convey our honest condolence to the British people, wish God's mercy upon the person who lost his life in the attack, patience to his family and speedy recovery for the wounded", the statement said.
