Call for unity in Nottingham following Finsbury Park mosque attack

In Latest News, Press & In The Media,

A police forensic tent erected at Finsbury Park in north London, where one man has died, eight people taken to hospital and a person arrested after a van struck pedestrians.

A call for unity has been made in Nottingham in the wake of a terror attack in London.

A pedestrian has died after a man in a white van drove into worshippers attending Ramadan night prayers outside Finsbury Park mosque in Seven Sisters Road at 12.20am this morning (Monday, June 19).

One man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. Police have said they are not seeking any more people beyond the man arrested.

Now, the leader of Nottingham City Council has strongly condemned the attack and urged people to remain united within Nottingham’s communities.

Councillor Jon Collins said: “The horrific attack last night was an act of terrorism which deliberately targeted the Muslim community. Our thoughts are with the family and friends of all those affected.

“We cannot and will not let crimes of hate like the attack last night and elsewhere in London and in Manchester over the last few weeks divide our communities.

“Over the weekend, communities across Nottingham and the country as a whole came together to remember the MP Jo Cox, murdered in a hate crime just a year ago. At this time, it is more important than ever that we share her message that we have more in common than divides us.
