This is the dramatic moment a bungling arsonist almost set fire to his WALKING STICK after starting a blaze outside a lettings agent.

Dramatic CCTV footage shows the disabled man limping towards Landlords Sales & Lettings in Wolverhampton, West Midlands., at 8.30pm last Tuesday (27/5/14).

The 1.25-minute clip shows the man leaning his walking stick against the window while he pours fuel in the doorway of the business before setting it on fire. The hapless arsonist is then seen limping away from the fire before returning to battle the flames in order to retrieve his walking stick.
