  1. I would think this boy is afraid of repercussions. You don’t accidentally set fire to someone’s clothes.

  2. There is something very wrong about this story. This child is probably terrified of repercussions so he has told such a daft story. Poor little boy. What on earth has gone wrong with British children and when will someone step up to fix it?

  3. another case of police incompitence, clearly hes scared something else would happen if he said anything and i cant believe the police are too thick to see that.
