A man who killed eight people in an arson attack in Huddersfield ten years ago has been freed from prison. Nazar Hussain was one of a gang who petrol bombed the home of the Chishti family in Birkby.
The decision to release him just half-way through his 18-year sentence has been condemned by both survivors and relatives of those who died. He has been released on licence after a Parole Board review - despite vehement objections being lodged with the board.
