CCTV images captured the moment the Swedish tourist was set alight on the service from Hastings to Charing Cross. The woman, a teacher on a school trip, was walking through the carriage when one of the youths held out a lighter and touched her hair. She only realised she was on fire when her students started screaming and she was able to pat out the flames. British Transport Police inspec- tor Gary Ancell, who is leading the inquiry, said the woman e s c a p e d i n j u r y b u t w a s extremely distressed. He said police are hunting four youths, two of whom were thrown off the train by a conductor who discovered them hiding in a toilet. Mr Ancell said: The victim was walking through the carriage at about 6.30pm when a youth held out a lighter as she passed him. Her hair caught alight and she only realised what had happened when she saw her students screaming and pointing to her hair. She was able to pat the fire out. The victim was incredibly lucky because a few seconds more and the majority of her hair could have been on fire. Assaults of this nature are extremely rare on the railway system but I am treating this incident very seriously and urge the youths pictured in the CCTV images or anyone who recognises them to come forward to police. Anyone with information about the incident on Sunday July 19, or who recognises the youths, should contact 0800 40 50 40. by georgina littlejohn Set alight: the victim with her hair on fire in the train H index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html
