Many have praised Jeremy Corbyn for his response to the Finsbury Park terror attack as he visited the site today.

The attack took place in his constituency in Corbyn's early hours of this morning (June 19), when a van was driven into people outside a mosque.

One man has died and 10 others were injured, according to the Evening Standard.

The Labour leader was visibly upset as he spoke to local residents at the scene. He has also said he will go to a prayer service at Finsbury Park Mosque.

Many on Twitter think Theresa May, who has been criticised for her perceived afailure to connect with the public in response to recent events, should learn from Corbyn about how to respond to terror attacks, and have said this shows him as a great leader.
