A lone individual appears to have carried out an attack on the UK Border Force immigration center in Dover before taking his own life, according to local media citing eyewitnesses. Police arrived on the scene minutes after the attack and the area was quickly cordoned off. The assailant arrived at the scene in a white SEAT sport utility vehicle and threw three petrol bombs at the facility, according to local media, citing eyewitness reports. The improvised explosives used by the man were reportedly attached to fireworks, but only two of the three projectiles actually exploded. Following this act, the attacker then tied a noose around his neck and tied him to a metal pole before leaving, resulting in his death. The incident comes after British media reported nearly 1,000 migrants arriving in the UK crossing the English Channel, with some 40,000 migrants in total arriving in the country this year.
