MO, 19/6/2017, LONDON – Worshippers were hit by a van as they left a north London mosque, the Muslim Council of Britain said on Monday.

“We have been informed that a van has run over worshippers as they left Finsbury Park Mosque,” it said on Twitter.

At least three people were seriously injured near the mosque, a witness told the BBC.

Several people were injured in north London early on Monday after reports that a vehicle rammed into pedestrians, British police said.

Police said they were called just after 12.20am to reports of a collision on Seven Sisters Road, which runs through the Finsbury Park area of the city. The Sun newspaper said a van hit a crowd of people near Finsbury Park mosque.

“There are a number of casualties being worked on at the scene,” London police said, describing it as a major incident.

“There has been one person arrested.” A Reuters witness saw at least one person being loaded into an ambulance. A number of police and ambulances were in attendance.
