The suspect in the Finsbury Park terror attack had expressed increasingly antagonistic views towards Muslims in the weeks following the recent London Bridge atrocity, it emerged tonight.

Darren Osborne, 47, was arrested in the early hours of Monday on suspicion of driving a van into a crowd of Muslim worshippers in north London. He is alleged to have shouted “kill all Muslims” and “this is for London Bridge” in the wake of the attack.

Muslim residents on the Cardiff estate where he lived with his partner and four children, claimed he had previously been friendly but said his attitude had changed in recent weeks.

He allegedly hurled insults at his Asian neighbour’s 12-year-old son, in the wake of the Islamist attack in the capital earlier this month. telegraph.co.uk
