Arsonists start fires in chapel, then try to put them out

Video. Arsonists who started several fires and torched the inside of a chapel almost got trapped in their own flames. They had broken into the 19th Century building in Blandford, Dorset, damaging the historically important wooded pews before realising they had cut off their own escape route.

The town council says people who visit the cemetery have been left devastated by the damage and they are offering a reward for information to track down the culprits. Martin Dowse reports.
