Theresa May: Finsbury Park terror attack ‘every bit as sickening’ as Manchester and London Bridge

19 Jun

The Finsbury Park terror attack is “every bit as sickening” as the Manchester and London Bridge atrocities, Theresa May has said.

The Prime Minister said the attack, which saw one person die and 10 people injured after a van was driven into worshippers near Finsbury Park mosque, would not succeed in trying to divide the nation.

Speaking in Downing Street after chairing a meeting of the Cobra emergency committee, she said: “This morning, our country woke to news of another terrorist attack on the streets of our capital city: the second this month and every bit as sickening as those which have come before.

“It was an attack that once again targeted the ordinary and the innocent going about their daily lives – this time British Muslims as they left a Mosque having broken their fast and prayed together at this sacred time of year.
