Five Arrested After Asylum Seekers Set Fire to English Migrant Camp

by A.P.

Five men have been arrested after a group of migrants set fire to the former military barracks in Kent which had been converted into a camp for asylum seekers in the wake of massive illegal boat migration.

On Saturday, Kent police announced that four men were arrested in connection to the fire at the Napier Barracks. They arrested another man on suspicion of assaulting a security guard at the camp.

The fire was reportedly started after migrants were enraged that they would have to remain in the camp, rather than being transferred to hotels as some were following an outbreak of coronavirus earlier this month.

Detective Chief Superintendent Andrew Pritchard of the Kent Police force said per the BBC: “As part of our work, we are working in close partnership with the Home Office and Kent Fire and Rescue Service to help us establish the full circumstances and identify any individuals involved.
