A PETROL bomb was used to set a car alight in a horrifying attack on an industrial estate in Bury.

A brick was thrown through the window of the Volkswagen vehicle, which was parked in Porritt Street shortly after midnight on Sunday.

The fire, which destroyed the interior of the vehicle, is now being investigated by police. Two passers-by reported the incident to the fire service, whose crews were at the scene for 30 minutes.
