In pictures: Finsbury Park Mosque attack

A man has died and nine people have been hospitalised after a man drove a van into worshippers near a north London mosque.

The prime minister chaired a Cobra meeting of the government's emergency committees earlier and said the attack was "every bit as sickening" as other recent attacks to hit the UK.
