A car was reportedly driven to a police station in the UK capital tonight, with witnesses reporting an “attack”.
Metropolitan Police say a man has been arrested after a shocking incident, with witnesses claiming he drove his car to Edmonton Police Station in north London.
Many people reported that one person failed to run through the doors of the station on Four Street, then poured flammable liquid on the road and car and set things up.
Police confirmed that one person had been arrested and the police station was cordoned off and evacuated.
Footage posted on Twitter shows a man pouring flammable liquid before burning it on the road.
The footage then shows three police officers holding a man on the ground, from where his car can be seen exiting the police station.
A Med Police spokesman said: “A vehicle collided with the station office at Edmonton Police Station on Wednesday, November 11 at about 18:58 p.m.
