Shocking moment “jealous” yobs light woman’s car on fire on her driveway


THIS is the moment two thugs douse a woman’s car in flammable liquid and set it alight on her driveway.

The shocking scene took place on a residential street in Wigan, Greater Manchester in the early hours of this morning [Thur].

It was captured on CCTV and shared online by the car-owner’s daughter, Adele Rooney who claims the yobs were “jealous” of her mum’s vehicle.

The video shows two people dressed in hoodies and what look like anti-flammable suits approaching the house.

They confer in a walkway at the side of the property before gaining access to the drive.

One of the yobs then douses a van parked outside with flammable liquid in a plastic bottle.

They then repeat the act on the woman’s white Ford sat next to it.

The Ford is then lit on fire and an explosion of light fills the frame before the car is revealed again engulfed in flames.

A further image posted to Facebook shows the car engine completely blackened and ruined with the front right-hand side tire melted.

Adele posted to social media: “My mum does absolutely nothing to no one, very jealous bitter people about but we will find out who has done this to her if it’s the last thing that we do.

“If anyone knows anything about this please message us we will give a reward for any information leading to an arrest.”

Speaking today, daughter Adele told of her mother, Sandra Rostroln’s,55, ordeal.

Adele, 32 said:” They were lingering around for three minutes, they knew what they were doing.”

“I became aware at 1:20am when my mother phoned me, neighbors came running with buckets of water.”

“The police think they (the arsonists) got the wrong address”

Adele, a sales manager spoke further of her “The car will be wrote off, that’s eight grand gone. My mum was petrified, she was hysterical she could not breath and the fire men had to calm her down.”

Adele added:” That could have potentially took my mums life.”

“The car was a piece of metal but it’s affected her, she doesn’t want another. They don’t realise what they have caused.”

The extent of the damage is huge as the eight grand car is left in cinders.
