Tarrant said he was inspired by Darren Osborne, who drove into worshippers  outside Finsbury Park Mosque in North London  in  2017

Scotland Yard’s Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, head of counterterrorism, said there was “no intelligence linking these appalling events to the UK”.

Meanwhile, security at mosques across ­Britain was stepped up yesterday over fears of a copycat attack. Police  increased patrols and offered  advice.

Col Richard Kemp, former chair of the Government’s Cobra group, admitted: “A New Zealand type attack has long been considered.”
