London: A mob attempted to attack the Avenfield property of former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s family here, British authorities said.

The protesters attempted to break down the doors to the property on Sunday night, Geo News reported on Monday.

As some of them gained access to the apartment, one protester threw a shopping cart at Aijaz Gul, a member of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) UK unit.

Soon after, the Metropolitan Police reached the site of the protest near Avenfield House, a luxury housing scheme and started a search. Police officials said there were reports of protesters possessing weapons including knives.

An investigation into the incident was underway but no arrests were made. The police said that legal action will be initiated over the destruction to private property.
