Car filled with jerry cans drives into a police station in Kerkrade

Earlier this morning, a car filled with jerry cans deliberately drove into a police station in Kerkrade. There was significant damage done to the police station, but no-one inside was injured.

Police think that the driver of the car wanted to set fire to the police station. The jerry cans were filled with a liquid, which could have been flammable. A small fire did break out, but it was quickly brought under control- so if arson was the plan of the driver, it failed.

One person arrested

Someone has been arrested, but it’s not yet clear if this person was the driver of the car. The police have set up barriers around the police station. There were two police officers in the building when the attack took place, but luckily they were in another part of the station.

What do you think happened? Let us know in the comments below.
