Chip shop arsonist who set himself on fire jailed

An arsonist who engulfed himself in a fireball when he set light to a chip shop has been jailed.

North Yorkshire Police said Lubos Filek, 40, has never explained why he torched Abbey Fisheries in Selby, causing more than £100,000 of damage.

Filek was caught on CCTV as the blaze set fire to his clothes, engulfing him in flames, as he ran from the scene.

The force confirmed that Filek was jailed for five years and eight months at York Crown Court on Friday.
