'We came here to feel safe', says Finsbury park attack witness

A witness to the Finsbury Park attack has told talkRADIO how she came to the UK to feel "safe". 

One man has died and 10 more people were injured after a van was driven into pedestrians in North London. 

Maura was a witness to the attack.  She told Alex Dibble: "The way I feel is this accident doesn’t link with the religion. What happened in Manchester, Westminster, here, it’s all the same - people trying to divide us.

“We have to feel safe. These people try to divide out communities. It doesn’t matter if you’re Muslim or Christian, you have to feel safe.

"We came from our country, from civil war, from trouble in life. The reason we came here was to feel safe, but we’re still having the same problem.

"Britain, the UK, having these attacks within two months? What’s going on?"
