Petrol bombs thrown at police as riot-hit Edmonton suffers fresh attack


The Metropolitan police have said that petrol bombs were thrown at a marked police van patrolling a suburb hit by this month’s riots.

Officers escaped injury after coming under attack on Wednesday night in Edmonton, north London.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said police became aware of “what appeared to be petrol bombs landing near their vehicle” while on routine patrol in Fore Street, a main thoroughfare.

“No damage was caused and no injuries were sustained,” a statement said. “[There have been] no arrests at this early stage and inquiries continue.”
