$20 says in a day or two will hear the words, "authorities knew the man was a potential threat" or something along those lines. They need to get it together.

"Detectives have trawled through around 80 hours of CCTV so far. They have visited 140 locations and recovered 33 digital devices from a number of addresses in Wales."

80 hours of CCTV? And 140 locations? What if it turns out to have been an accident, caused by a drunk driver?
I presume they are trying to somehow make sure they delete all the CCTV that shows the actual incident occurring... before the court case.

You'll notice that this COMPLETELY BIASED article says "Nine other people were taken to hospital when a van driver targeted the area busy, with worshippers attending Ramadan night prayers at the nearby mosque."

"nearby" meaning "500 yards away".

You'll also notice that it says "Finsbury Park mosque tragedy in pictures".

But it happened in Whadcoat Street. The BBC must be kicking themselves that they produced that aerial map showing exactly where the incident happened.

It's VERY simple: If the van driver had been deliberately trying to kill muslims by running them over, he would have smashed into the BOLLARDS that are less than twenty yards from the entrance to Whadcoat Street, because he would have been accelerating, not decelerating. The fact that the front of the van has not been smashed in by a bollard or bollards proves that he was decelerating and was able to stop before hitting them.

And that is IT. That is all you need to know about this case. Any detective worth his salt would have come to this conclusion on the night of the incident, as soon as he saw where the van was stopped, and the lack of damage on the front of it.

The basic -- OK, BIG -- mistake you're making here is the assumption that the driver barrelled down that road like a bat out of Hell. It would be quite possible to accelerate briefly to a moderate speed and then brake rapidly to avoid (duh!) doing yourself a mischief by crashing destructively into the completely-obvious bollards.

From an outside perspective, the van would seem to lurch rapidly forward then stop rapidly. It wouldn't take more than a second or two, and would be over before anyone had time to react.

Or perhaps you think that he drove single-mindedly toward the scene all the way from Wales, accelerating throughout, with the Dambusters march building to a climax as he hurtled the final 500 metres?

So you are presuming that the detectives are deleting the CCTV footage? That is one hell of a presumption but I think that you would be wrong. That is not how things work.
