Finsbury Park mosque attack: Poignant message of solidarity left at Tube station


London Underground staff left a poignant message of solidarity for commuters at Finsbury Park station after a terror attack outside a nearby mosque.

One man was killed and 10 others injured after the van was driven into a crowd of worshippers near the north London mosque in the early hours of Monday.

Hours after the attack, a Tube worker wrote on the station’s white board: “Tough times don’t last. Tough people do stick together. All of us.”

The message of solidarity was shared widely on social media.

One man was arrested after the van veered into crowds on Seven Sisters Road as dozens of people finished prayers at the mosque just after midnight.

The 48-year-old suspect allegedly shouted “kill me, kill me” and blew kisses from the back of a police van after he was pinned to the ground by onlookers before being arrested.

Scotland Yard confirmed one man had died and that Counter Terrorism officers are investigating the attack.

The nature of the attack drew immediate parallels with the London Bridge atrocity two weeks ago, in which eight innocent people were killed.
