The Bishop of Leicester is urging people to 'stand together' after a terror attack near Finsbury Park mosque in North London.

At 12.20am (19 June) a man drove into pedestrians, seriously injuring ten people and counter-terror police are working to determine if one man died as a result of the attack.

The Rt Revd Martyn Snow said:

Once again I am shocked and saddened to wake to news of another attack on the streets of London, this time on Muslims leaving prayers after breaking their Ramadan fast.

All those caught up in this are in our thoughts and prayers. Any act of terrorism, no matter who the perpetrator, aims to drive divisions through our society.

I urge you therefore to stand together to condemn all such acts of violence and to continue to work for a stronger and more united community, here in Leicester and beyond.

– The Rt Revd Martyn Snow
