Police officers standing in front of a synagogue in London‘s Golders Green were targeted with a Molotov cocktail.
No one was hurt during the attack but footage circulating on Twitter has shown a car being engulfed in flames before firefighters doused it.
“Police and fire brigade on site. Appears to have involved a molotov cocktail next to a synagogue on The Riding, ” said Alex Prager, a councilor for West Hendon.
Golders Green Road has been closed off for security and investigation while emergency services were deployed in the area.
“There were lots of police of different varieties and a chopper going overheard. The road has been cordoned off from Ravenscroft to Be Kosher and we have seen riot police and numerous unmarked cars,” said one witness.
The Met Police said they have arrested one suspect in connection with the attack but have not yet given any other details.
