A MAN is believed to have accidentally set fire to himself during an arson attack which went wrong in WGC this morning (Thursday).

A red Peugeot 106, a green Peugeot 206 and a white Transit van were torched during the attack, which took place around 3am in Oaken Grove.

One resident told the WHT that the incident was captured on CCTV and showed three black men near the cars.

She said the footage went on to show one of the hapless arsonists setting fire to himself.

She added the attackers also dropped and left behind a set of keys for a Mini and a Sony Ericsson mobile phone.
