Arsonist sets arse on fire during shop attack

This is the stunning second an arsonist burnt his personal bottom during a shop attack.

CCTV footage captures his confederate ramming the door with a bike earlier than he pours flammable liquid inside and sets it alight.

But as he makes his escape the flames catch his clothes and he has to pat them away.

Both males then flee the scene on the pink motorcycle, with the arsonist driving pillion.

Police officers investigating the attack mentioned a cleaner at The Dolls House shop in Bridge Street, , was handled for shock.
