The so-called Islamic State group have claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Abdul Choudhuri, chairman of the Faizan e Madinah Mosque in Gladstone Street, said: “We condemn such disgraceful action in most strongest terms. “Such misguided criminals do pick up soft targets to satisfy their masters’s own political goal- but they will never succeed as they are a very tiny monitory, and all decent minded people detest their criminal activities. People of all faiths are united against such criminals.”
