ATER­RI­FY­ING ar­son at­tack has been fea­tured on BBC’s Crime­watch in a bid to catch the cul­prit who “could have killed” a fam­ily.

The pro­gramme in­cluded a full re­con­struc­tion of the at­tack in Yew Tree Road, Orm­skirk, which hap­pened in March.

Paul Ponting said he was read­ing in bed when the room sud­denly lit up. His wife and two chil­dren were asleep. When he raced down­stairs and out­side, the fe­roc­ity of the flames forced him back in­side.
