Court sentences Finsbury Park attacker Darren Osborne to 43 years in prison

Court sentences Finsbury Park attacker Darren Osborne to 43 years in prison

A man who drove a van into a crowd of Muslims near a north London mosque has been sentenced to life in prison, with a minimum term of 43 years behind bars.

"This was a terrorist attack", Justice Bobbie Cheema-Grubb said.

Far-right loner Darren Osborne, 48, was convicted in less than an hour over the van attack on a crowd of worshippers in June a year ago.

Amber Rudd said: "Nothing will make up for the death of Mr Ali but this conviction and long sentence will hopefully come as some solace to his family and those injured as a result of Osborne's horrific terrorist attack at Finsbury Park".

Osborne, a "total loner", had become obsessed with Muslims after watching BBC drama Three Girls in May previous year and was angered by what he deemed as inaction following a string of United Kingdom terror attacks, his estranged partner Sarah Andrews said.

Speaking after Osborne was found guilty of murder and attempted murder following his attack at Finsbury Park, James said: "The suggestion that Muslim immigration was a reason to vote to leave the European Union was an idea built entirely upon the prejudice that they must all be bad".

She added: "You hired a big van and the next day you took it from Cardiff to London, intending to deploy it as a lethal weapon to drive into and murder innocent people, lawfully assembled and protesting in London".

A local imam protected Osborne from the angry crowd after the attack.

After two weeks of evidence, it took the jury one hour on Thursday to find him guilty.

Ruzina Akhtar, the eldest daughter of Makram Ali, 51, said that her mother had been too scared to go out by herself since her husband was run over by Darren Osborne, 48.

"In short you allowed your mind to be poisoned by those who claimed to be leaders".

The court heard he had become "obsessed" with Muslims after watching BBC drama Three Girls and was angered by what he deemed as inaction following a string of United Kingdom terror attacks.

"We have been clear throughout that this was a terrorist attack, and he must now face the consequences of his actions".

Reporters in court described Osborne as emotionless.

"I would like to pay tribute to Mr Ali's family and the local community in Finsbury Park, for their tremendous support and understanding with our investigation during what must have been an extremely hard time for them".
