Truck arsonist sets his arm on fire in Rochdale
An arsonist set himself ablaze as he tried to set fire to a recovery truck.
The man's left arm caught fire as he poured a flammable liquid on to the grille of the parked vehicle in Falinge, Rochdale, Greater Manchester and lit it.
As he ran up Ashworth Street, at about 05:00 GMT on Wednesday, he made desperate attempts to put out the flames before getting into a light-coloured Nissan Micra waiting nearby.
