Darren Osborne, 48, of Glyn Rhosyn in Cardiff, has been found guilty of murder and attempted murder in England after deliberately ploughing a van into Muslim worshippers in Finsbury Park.

At Woolwich Crown Court on Thursday, Osborne was found guilty of murder and attempted murder, with police and prosecutors saying it was an act of terrorism.

Just after midnight, he saw a group of Muslims helping 51-year-old Makram Ali, who had collapsed at an intersection.

"Darren Osborne planned and carried out this attack because of his hatred of Muslims", said Sue Hemming of the Crown Prosecution Service.

He was motivated by deadly terror attacks in Britain and an obsession with a television account of Muslim men who targeted white girls, a London court was told during the trial.

"The evidence establishes that the defendant was trying to kill as numerous group as possible", Mr Rees told jurors.

Witnesses denied this and said Osborne shouted "I've done my job, you can kill me now" and "at least I had a proper go" to victims and bystanders at the scene.

He claims to have plotted with two men called Terry and Dave to "plough through as many" people as possible at a pro-Palestinian march, before abandoning the idea and travelling to Finsbury Park for a drink in a pub.

But prosecutors said there was no evidence of more than one person in the van, and dismissed his eleventh hour defence as "nonsense".

Prosecutors said Osborne was radicalized over just a few weeks, in part through online far-right propaganda.

Sarah Andrews, Orborne's partner told police detectives that his attitude had dramatically changed weeks before the attack after watching the Three Girls, a BBC TV drama about a grooming scandal.

The CPS prosecuted the case as a terrorist offence because Osborne's actions were in order to advance a political objective.

He said "Dave" had taken his place in the driver's seat minutes before the attack and was the one responsible.

Commander Dean Haydon, a senior counterterrorism officer with London's Metropolitan Police, said the case showed how "individuals can become radicalized really, really quickly" online.

When that did not prove possible, he drove around the city looking for a mosque, it said.

Britain has been a target for foreign and homegrown Islamists since the September 11 2001 USA attacks, but Haydon said right-wing groups were an emerging threat.

"He later invented an unconvincing story to counter the overwhelming weight of evidence but the jury has convicted him. We can not be complacent and regard this as a one-off terrorist incident", Secretary-General Harun Khan said in a statement.

"When islamists commit acts of terror we rightly hunt down the hate preachers who inspired them", he tweeted.

'There is no difference in terrorism committed by some elements of the Muslim community and those of the far right.
