A man has died and eight people have been injured after a van struck a crowd of pedestrians near a north London mosque.

A 48-year-old man was arrested following the collision just after midnight near Finsbury Park Mosque in Seven Sisters Road.

Counter terrorism officers are at the scene, the Metropolitan Police said.

The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) said a van "intentionally" ran over worshippers.

The body said it was a "violent manifestation of Islamophbia" and called for extra security around mosques.
