A former Weston-super-Mare man who is accused of killing one man and injuring several others in an alleged terror attack in London last month will go on trial in the new year.

Darren Osborne, aged 47, has been charged with murder and attempted murder, and his trial will start at the Old Bailey in London on January 22.

The former Broadoak School student is alleged to have driven a van into a crowd of people outside a Finsbury Park mosque on June 19 – killing 51-year-old Makram Ali and injuring nine others.

Osborne appeared at the Old Bailey on July 20 via video link from Belmarsh prison, and only spoke to confirm his name.

The father-of-four, who was raised in Weston before recently moving to the outskirts of Cardiff, has been remanded in custody and is due to enter a plea in November.
