10 year old Gabriel Wishart was set on fire after being sprayed with an aerosol can by teenagers at Ashton park in York. He had been playing when the group set his clothes alight.
He dropped to the floor and rolled in the snow to put out the flames and escaped unhurt. North Yorkshire Police called the incident “extremely concerning” and are stepping up patrols in the area.
