London Underground staff have shared an uplifting message at Finsbury Park Station, just a short distance from where a driver ploughed his van into a crowd of Muslims. 

A photo taken by Twitter user Charlie Robertson of a Tube worker writing the quote of the day on a white board at the station entrance has been shared and liked thousands of times.

The message reads: "Tough times don't last. Tough people do. Stick together. All of us." 

Darren Osborne, a 47-year-old father of four, has been named by the British press as the man arrested on suspicion of "the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism including murder and attempted murder", the police have said.

Ten people were injured in the attack, which took place early Monday after evening prayers in Finsbury Park, north London.

One elderly man, who had collapsed just before the incident, was pronounced dead at the scene, but it is not yet known whether his death was directly linked to the attack.

It is not the first time commuters have been greeted by inspirational messages of solidarity and unity at London Tube stations. 

In the wake of the Westminster attack in March, people shared these on social media:

And these were spotted following the London Bridge and Borough Market attack on June 3.

Comment: Fight the fear of terror with unity
When it comes to events of terrorism, most of us feel we have no control over the actions of others. We are only empowered in how we react to it.
