and Katie Hopkins squared off over the Finsbury Park terror attack on Twitter today after the Harry Potter author accused the columnist of inspiring the incident. Hopkins later hit back and claimed Rowling was having an almost "sexual" thrill given how much she was tweeting following the incident this morning. Alongside a screengrab of the tweet, Rowling wrote: "Again: let's talk about how the #FinsburyPark terrorist was radicalised." He wrote to his 300,000 followers: "The mosque where the attack happened tonight has a long history of creating terrorists & radical jihadists & promoting hate & segregation. He wrote: "Hate preachers like @ TRobinsonNewEra incite people to carry out attacks against innocent Muslims." #FinsburyPark mosque won an award for combating extremism." Police said they are treating the attack in Seven Sisters Road as a terror attack. A man died at the scene and eight people were taken to three hospitals to be treated for injuries. Police said he is a 48-year-old man. Witnesses described the driver as a large white man.
