According to witnesses at the scene, the vehicle veered off the road into worshippers leaving the mosque after midnight.
A woman who lives opposite the scene, while speaking to BBC said;
From the window, I started hearing a lot of yelling and screeching, a lot of chaos outside.Everybody was shouting: 'A van'has hit people, a van hit people. There was this white van stopped outside Finsbury Park mosque that seemed to have hit people who were coming out after prayers had finished.
Passers-by said that the crowd was trying to give a man who had collapsed by the pavement CPR, and the fan arrived to hit them. When the man later left the van, he was restrained by people, and was handed over to the police when they came around.
