A van ploughed into a crowd of Muslims near a London mosque early on Monday, killing one person and injuring 10 others in the second terror attack this month in the British capital.

A 47-year-old man was restrained by locals at the scene and police later arrested him on suspicion of attempted murder and terrorism offences.

They had been helping a man who had collapsed.

Ten people were hurt, all of them Muslims, with eight of them requiring hospital treatment.

Neighbors and acquaintances described the man who allegedly attacked a group of Muslim worshippers as an unemployed lout who was drinking heavily and making anti-Muslim remarks in the days before the attack - details to be closely examined as the investigation widened Tuesday. Those attacks and a third outside a pop concert in Manchester have triggered a surge in hate crimes against Muslims around Britain.

Britain's terrorist alert is set at "severe", meaning an attack is highly likely, Sky News reported.

"He seemed like a good dad, he takes the kids to school and back every day and walks the dogs, she said".

Police said the driver was detained by the crowd until police arrived.
