A man seen on CCTV with his leg on fire at the scene of a trampoline park arson attack is being sought by police.

Images released by Derbyshire police show a man's leg in flames at the blaze at Oxygen Freejumping, in Derby, early on Friday 9 June.

Officers said they were concerned for the man's safety, as he may have burns.

David Stalker, from Oxygen Freejumping Ltd, said the trampolines were destroyed in the fire, and the building may have to be demolished.

He added: "The whole trampoline park is covered in dust and particles, it is a fairly horrible scene."

Powerleague Derby Soccerdome is also based in the same building, in Pride Park, and both venues are closed indefinitely while the investigation is carried out.
