An arsonist became engulfed in a ball of flames as he petrol bombed a chip shop in the middle of the night.

Unemployed Lubos Filek, 40, suffered severe burns to his hands and body as the fire rapidly spread and ignited his clothes.

Dramatic CCTV footage captured the moment Filek set himself on fire and fled across a main road in Selby, North Yorks., in the early hours on March 21 this year.

He had seconds earlier thrown two bricks through the shop's front window, followed by five litres of petrol in a can which he lit with a lighter, a court heard.
