SHOCKING footage has emerged of a yob brazenly pouring petrol across a pelican crossing in Bradford before setting it alight. 

The video, thought to have been shot on Great Horton Road, outside the Moonlight ice cream parlour, shows the road blocked by a wall of flames as the blaze takes hold. 

Muzy Hussain, who shared the video on Facebook, wrote: "As a community and parents WE have failed once again, allowing these young wannabe gangsters to cause nuisance and inconvenience to local residents, road users and the emergency services.

"Pouring petrol at a pelican crossing outside moonlight on Gt Horton road then igniting it while cars are passing is taking it to another level in terms of anti-social behaviour."
