The suspect who ploughed into Muslims outside a mosque early Monday morning has been identified as 47-year-old Darren Osborn, with his photos at the scene being circulated online.

A photo of him which was taken by Ahmed Moor, of Liverpool, soon after the attack, was showed the man looking battered and bruised.

Following the attack which left one dead and over 8 people injured, the 48-year-old suspect was pinned down and beaten up by angry people at the scene as they held him for at least 15minutes before police arrived and arrested him.

It was during this time that Moor took a photo of the suspect.

“There was about five to six people holding him down,” Mr Moor told The Mirror. “Some people hit him while he was on the floor. The Imam stopped them hitting him.”
