Firebomber attacks police station
A police station car park has been petrol bombed in Greater Manchester.

Officers say a blue car drew up to the side of Pendleton station in Salford and a man got out and threw around five home-made petrol bombs over the wall.

Two police vehicles suffered minor fire damage in the attack, which happened on Belvedere Road on Friday evening.

According to detectives, once the man had thrown the petrol bombs over the wall, he got back in his car and drove off towards Hankinson Way.

Police are appealing for any witnesses to contact them.
