Finsbury Park attack: Theresa May's statement in full
(BBC News, 19/06/2017)
 
"This morning, our country woke to news of another terrorist attack on the streets of our capital city, the second this month and every bit as sickening as those which have come before.

"It was an attack that once again targeted the ordinary and the innocent going about their daily lives - this time British Muslims as they left a mosque having broken their fast and prayed together at this sacred time of year.

"Today we come together - as we have done before - to condemn this act and to state once again that hatred and evil of this kind will never succeed.
