Other bystanders helped police to restrain the man until the officers were able to pin him to the ground.

He was then taken to hospital, via ambulance, where he was treated for “life-threatening injuries”, police said.

One witness told local news that the man’s flesh was “burning before the flames were put out with water”.

They said: “His skin was burning. He was on fire. His skin is stuck to my shirt.
