Dozy smoker set fire to face

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

HAP­LESS Stephen Par­son­age sprayed his hair, lit a cig­a­rette – and set fire to his face!

The Black­burn dad-of­four, 26, suf­fered sec­ond de­grees burns to his face and hands af­ter spark­ing a mist of hair­spray.

He said: “I went to A&E and ev­ery­one in the wait­ing room was laugh­ing at me, so I de­cided to dis­charge my­self. I am re­ally em­bar­rassed.

“I have sec­ond de­gree burns on my fore­head and hands.”

He added: “I had no idea that could even hap­pen.

“Surely, re­tail­ers shouldn’t be able to sell hair­spray if this can hap­pen.”
