In the early hours of this morning, Masjid Abu Huraira was viciously attacked in an arson attempt with the front doors being set on fire.
Alhamdulillah, there were no injures, although this does not detract from what could have been a potentially fatal incident. On the anniversary of the Grenfell fire tragedy, we find such hateful actions abhorrent and unacceptable. We strongly condemn this incident and the police are investigating this matter.
We advise all places of worship and individuals to be vigilant and alert, and to ensure that adequate security measures are in place to protect individuals and property.
If you see anything suspicious, then please report it to the police immediately by calling 999.
