1 Просмотры
A MAN arrested after ramming a car into a police station and setting a street alight had allegedly just received a coronavirus fine of up to £10,000.

Police are investigating whether the suspect, 45, snapped after being given the maximum fixed penalty notice for breaching lockdown rules.

It is unclear at this stage what Covid rules the man is accused of breaking.

The suspect was arrested after ramming a car into Edmonton Police Station in North London last night.

He also doused the street outside in a flammable liquid and set it ablaze - causing a mass evacuation.

The man was arrested on suspicion of arson and a number of other offences and remains in custody.

Scotland Yard confirmed the carnage is not being treated as terror-related.

They also said no injuries to any police officers or members of the public were reported.

Commander Ade Adelekan said: "This appears to have been an isolated incident and does not seem to be terror-related. I am satisfied that there is no wider risk to the community.

"Local officers will continue to carry out enquiries, but at this stage we are not looking for anybody else.

“I would like to thank the public for their response to the incident and would urge anyone with information about what happened to contact police.

"I also acknowledge the brave actions of local officers who confronted and arrested the suspect in a dangerous and challenging situation".
