Raw: Vehicle Strikes Pedestrians on London Road

Police say a vehicle struck pedestrians on a road in north London, leaving several casualties and one person has been arrested.

Police said they had been called to reports of the collision just after midnight on Monday morning.

Numerous victims are believed to have just finished worshipping at the Finsbury Park mosque after breaking the Ramadan fast. A man leapt out of a white van and stabbed at least one person near a North London mosque, the Evening Standard newspaper reported today, citing witnesses. "Shortly after police cordoned the area", said BBC producer Abdirahim Saeed, who was tweeting from the scene. "A Number of patients were also treated at the scene for minor injuries".

It later updated the location: "UPDATE: the attack took place outside @MWH_London which is nearby the #FinsburyPark mosque, not outside Finsbury Park mosque itself". The London Ambulance Service said it was responding to the incident.

In a statement, acting Navy Secretary Sean Stackley said, "We are all deeply saddened by the tragic loss of our fellow shipmates". There have been several collisions involving large vessels in the area over the past five years, Japan's Asahi newspaper said.

Witnesses at the scene have described the incident as "horrible" and "hell".

"This is a bad incident", May said in an emailed statement.

The incident followed a series of attacks in Britain. And after two van attacks since the month of March alone, London is wondering whether the Finsbury Park "incident" is another terrorist attack.
