A man has driven a burning car filled with gas cylinders into a Sydney police station carpark on Thursday night in an attempted terror attack.

The man, said to be in his 60s and of Caucasian appearance, set himself and the interior of the car on fire, before driving it into roller doors of the underground carpark of Merrylands police station in western Sydney.

He is said to have initially tried to drive the white Hyundai Getz into the front of the police station, and claimed he had a bomb.

The station had been recently fortified after receiving threats including letters threatening attacks on ‘non-Muslims’ and pictures of ISIS fighters holding severed heads.
