A man has been jailed for setting fire to a home in Fishponds, Bristol with people still asleep inside.
55 year old Alan Smith was convicted of arson after he bombarded a ground floor flat with homemade petrol bombs.
He had targeted the home because of an ongoing feud with one of the residents.
A window frame and curtains were engulfed in flames but further petrol thrown into the property by Smith failed to ignite.
He was sentenced to 5 years and 10 months and Bristol Crown Court this morning (June 13th).
