Video: PM condemns 'sickening' terror attack on London mosque (ITN News)

Theresa May has been heckled as she left Finsbury Park Mosque, where she had been visiting after a terror attack on Muslim worshippers.

One man was heard shouting "how come you were so quick today" as the Prime Minister emerged from the centre, an apparent reference to her initial failure to visit victims of the Grenfell Tower fire.

As a number of people surrounding the place of worship yelled at the leader, the same man could be heard asking "Mrs May, have you got a personal taxi today?".

Earlier on Monday Ms May had announced security around mosques would be reviewed in the wake of the attack which injured 10 people.

One man, who had been receiving first aid before the van crashed into pedestrians outside the Muslim Welfare House, also died.

"Extra police resources have already been deployed to reassure communities, and the police will continue to assess the security needs of mosques, and provide any additional resources needed, especially during this final week before Eid al-Fitr, a particularly important time for the whole Muslim community," the PM said in Downing Street.

Ms May said the attack, at about 12.20am on Monday, targeted the "ordinary and innocent" and added: "Hatred and evil of this kind will never succeed."

A 48-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.
