A man has been charged in connection with the van attack at Finsbury Park in London.

One person died and nine others were injured in the incident in the early hours of Monday morning.

It happened outside a mosque busy with worshippers attending Ramadan night prayers.

Makram Ali (51) from Harringey, died from "multiple injuries" following the attack, a post-mortem examination revealed.

Today, prosecutors said Darren Osborne (47) has been charged following the incident.

In a statement, the Crown Prosecution Service spokesperson said: "Today, the CPS authorised the Metropolitan Police to charge Darren Osborne with terrorism-related murder and attempted murder following the incident in Finsbury Park.

"The Crown Prosecution Service reminds all concerned that criminal proceedings against Mr Osborne are live and that he has a right to a fair trial. It is extremely important that there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice ongoing proceedings," the statement adds.

Mr Osborne is due to appear in court today in relation to the charges.
