A man is believed to have committed suicide after throwing three petrol bombs at a Border Force installation in the UK.
The unnamed man, described as “white” by a photographer, allegedly attacked a new Border Force facility in Dover on Sunday with Molotov cocktails.
The facility is believed to be one of the main places where migrants are initially processed after arriving in Britain, although there is no known motive for the attack so far.
According to a report by a photographer working for Reuters news agency, the individual traveled to the Border Force facility used for migrant processing in a SEAT sport utility vehicle.
The individual then allegedly threw three petrol bombs, which were attached to fireworks, at the compound, one of which failed to explode.
He then reportedly drove to a nearby gas station, where he tied a makeshift noose to a metal pole.
Passing the other end of the noose around his neck, the man would have committed suicide by fleeing.
Police reportedly arrived at the scene and cordoned off the area.

According to a report Per GB News on the incident, the attacker allegedly targeted the Port of Dover processing centre, which is described as the ‘main facility’ where Channel boat migrants are initially processed before being sent to larger complexes further inland.
Meanwhile, video footage posted by GB News reporter Mark White of the scene appears to show a fire outside the establishment, which was later put out by a number of individuals with fire extinguishers.
A spokesperson for the UK Home Office said the department is “aware of an incident” but that it “would not be appropriate to comment further at this stage” for some reason.
With the Home Office failing on all fronts (police, migrant boats, migrant hotels, deportations…) and now coming up with ideas like this, is it time to just abolish it? https://t.co/guURXLD8Kj
