A man died and ten people were injured.

A 48-year-old man was wrestled to the ground by members of the public and then arrested at the scene on suspicion of attempted murder, London's Metropolitan police said. He shouted he wants to kill all muslims.

No matter what the motivation proves to be, this is being treated as a terrorist attack and the counter-terrorism command is investigating.

This contributes to the terror created by previous car attacks.

.
It will not and if you all read the comments on Yahoo uk surrounding the story you will see it will get worse, they want all muslims out of the uk, all people have had enough and now they start taking things in to their own hands.

Re: London: Van crashes into pedestrians outside Finsbury Park mosque
My daughter told me this morning that the van used in the attack was hired from Pontyclun Van Hire, a ten minute walk from my house.

I've used the company myself and the distinctive logo on the vans is a regular site in the locality.

I don't know if it's common for people outside the area to hire these vans.

We know from history, that tit-for-tat attacks do not work. They escalate the problem, not reduce it.

Re: London: Van crashes into pedestrians outside Finsbury Park mosque
The word "terrorist" is being downplayed by the media. A casual mention that it MIGHT be a terrorist act. When a Muslim careens into a crowd of pedestrians, it is a terrorist attack. When a white man drives into a crowd of Muslims, it's a "suspected" terror attack?sigh

Re: London: Van crashes into pedestrians outside Finsbury Park mosque
I looked at the rather grainy photos in the media and the perpetrator looks familiar.

My daughter got home not long ago and said she and her work colleagues thought he looked familiar. They think he lives opposite the minimarket where they work, which would place him five minutes walk away from Pontyclun Van Hire.

Obviously this is all speculation, but it looks to me like a none too intelligent, nor well educated knobend from our village has taken it upon himself to be a d*ck and possibly a murderer.

It is yet to be established whether his actions killed the man who had already collapsed in the heat and was receiving first aid from members of the public.

This might account for the media reporting that he was not known, or being watched by the authorities.

Re: London: Van crashes into pedestrians outside Finsbury Park mosque
I'd noticed that, Sergio.

It had crossed my mind that the distinction between a terror attack and a terrorist attack might be whether the perpetrator had links with an organised crime group of some description, but I think the knobend who murdered the people at Manchester was thought to have a committed the crime alone, wasn't he?

There has to be a way to resolve Europe being run over. Is a Churchill type leader the solution? Terrorism runs amuck in Europe, Russia threatens to wipe Great Britain off the face of the earth, North Korea threatens to wipe the USA off the face of the earth... just what is everyone ticked off about? confused

Re: London: Van crashes into pedestrians outside Finsbury Park mosque
The suspect has been named as Darren Osborne, 47, a married father of four.

Reports are saying the family are based in Weston-super-Mare (over the boarder in England), but that Osborne was living in Llanederyn, Cardiff.

That would put him resident about 15/20 miles away from Pontyclun, I think.

It's possible that he worked locally, or maybe van hire is considerably cheaper here than it is in the capital. dunno

Most people don't even know that Pontyclun exists. We're not exactly the hub of the universe.

Re: London: Van crashes into pedestrians outside Finsbury Park mosque
The media reported that police swooped on Pontyclun Van Hire.

We don't have much swooping round here, but my daughter witnessed some swooping from the bus today. She said a police car drive past.

She also said the industrial estate where the van hire company are based appears to be more clogged with reporters than police.
