A terror suspect accused of carrying out a premeditated attack on Muslims as they left a mosque has been remanded in custody on murder and attempted murder charges.

Darren Osborne (47) was arrested by police in the early hours of Monday after allegedly ramming his van into worshippers on Seven Sisters Road, Finsbury Park, north London.

One man died from multiple injuries while several others were injured in the attack. No details were given in court about the number of attempted murder charges.

Unemployed Mr Osborne, of no fixed address in Cardiff, spoke only to confirm his identity when he appeared before Westminster Magistrates Court yesterday afternoon. The suspect, who seemed to have a bruise around his left eye, will appear at the Old Bailey on Tuesday for a preliminary hearing.
