On Monday morning a van ploughed into a group of worshippers who had just broken their Ramadan fast at a mosque in north London, injuring 10 people.

Famous faces have paid tribute to the victims of the attack on social media, and have used it to voice their own thoughts on what happened.

Lily tweeted that she had removed her comments after receiving ‘abhorrent replies’.

She said: ‘I’m deleting my tweets you all know where I stand on this.

‘The replies I’m getting are abhorrent. This has attracted the worst of the worst.’

Meanwhile Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter books, called for an end to ‘victim-blaming’.

She also retweeted a post by Brendan Cox, whose wife Jo Cox was murdered last year by a right-wing extremist, that said: ‘When Islamist terrorists attack we rightly seek out hate preachers who spur them on. We must do the same to those who peddle Islamophobia.’

Other celebrities who have paid tribute to the victims include Peter Andre, Dermot O’Leary and Ellie Goulding.

Andre tweeted: ‘Listening to the news. Such sad sad times, it truly breaks my heart.’

X Factor presenter Dermot said: ‘Sending love to Finsbury Park this morning.’

‘Very sad to hear about the Finsbury Park terrorist incident,’ Goulding tweeted.
