Van collides with pedestrians in northern London

One arrest and several people injured after a van reportedly drives into people in North London.

They said officers have responded with other emergency services including the London Ambulance Service who have sent a "number of resources" to Seven Sisters Road.

The Metropolitan Police said they had been called to an incident involving a vehicle and pedestrians.

The British Muslim Council said over the past weeks and months Muslims have "endured many incidents of Islamophobia, and this is the most violent manifestation to date". This happens during Ramadan, when Muslims fast from dawn to dusk and engage in intense prayer and feast at sundown.

Some witnesses at the scene said more than one attacker may have been involved. He wanted to run away and was saying, "I want to kill Muslims". I heard the sound of the van crashing.

Norris said he saw the driver of the van running toward a gate before being caught by a group of men.

"We do not know how many were injured or killed, but our prayers are with the victims and families".

She told Sky News people often congregate outside the mosque following prayer meetings but gatherings were generally very quiet.

The Finsbury Park mosque was associated with extremist ideology for several years after the 9/11 attacks in the United States, but was shut down and reorganized.

"They were very nervous, shouting very loud, trying desperately to make some signs to a police vehicle that was just passing the road", she told CNN. May says police are treating the crash as a potential terrorist attack.

"Horrible to watch police officers doing cardiac massage at people on the floor, desperately trying to save them", witness Cynthia Vanzella wrote on Twitter.

Earlier she described it as a "terrible incident", adding: "All my thoughts are with those who have been injured, their loved ones and the emergency services on the scene".

The scene is just metres from the main trunk railway line linking London with Edinburgh, the main Arsenal Football Club shop and what was the Rainbow Theatre, considered the prestige London concert venue in the 1960s and 1970s.

He called the incident a "horrific terrorist attack".

On June 3, a van drove into a crowd of people walking on the London Bridge, followed by knife attacks, leaving eight dead and many wounded.

Rudd, who is in charge for government law enforcement, said: "Londoners have been hit with a series of attacks and have been nothing short of heroic." she said on Monday.

Five people were killed in the attack.

On May 22, a suicide attack killed 22 people and injured almost 60 after an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.
