Man could see flames after pub attack in Leicester

A 21-year-old man from Leicester has been recounting the moment he was set on fire after flammable liquid was thrown into a pub beer garden.

Russell Banks was one of two men taken to hospital following the incident at the Rainbow and Dove pub in Charles Street in October.

Mr Banks said: "All of sudden I was on fire. I felt everything, my eyes were open and I could see the flames, I could feel it in my mouth."

Police said a 21-year-old man arrested in November has been bailed pending further inquiries.
