Finsbury Park: Vehicle smashes into pedestrians

A vehicle has hit pedestrians leaving "a number of casualties" in Seven Sisters Road, north London, police have said.

The Muslim Council tweeted that its prayers were with the victims.

Police said one person was arrested and that "a number of casualties [were] being worked on at the scene".

British police have sealed off the road outside Finsbury Park tube station in north-east London, after reports a van has driven into people in the area.

"There has been one person arrested", the police service adds. "Inquiries continue. More information will be released when confirmed", police said in a statement.

On March 22, a 52-year-old Briton rammed a auto into a crowd of pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, fatally injuring four of them, and then stabbed a police officer to death before he was gunned down by police. This happens during Ramadan, when Muslims fast from dawn to dusk and engage in intense prayer and feast at sundown.

The Metropolitan Police described it as a major incident.

No other details were available immediately.

Earlier this month, three terrorists carried out a vehicular attack followed by a stabbing spree in London that left eight people dead and dozens wounded.
