“The thing that concerned me was my gas meter is on the outside wall right beside where the car was parked,” said Mr Dennis.

He said it could easily have turned into a fatal fire “which is the reason we are offering a reward, leading to a name and conviction. These people need taking off the street.”

“Myself and my partner are away celebrating her birthday for the weekend and her daughter is house sitting for us. It really was an act of stupidity as the car was parked right beside my gas mains meter, so a big thanks to the fire brigade for getting there quickly.
