ARSONISTS torched a £20,000 Land Rover Sport parked outside a young family’s home.

Ross Barrett’s wife Lee saw the flames outside their house in Monkwick Avenue, Colchester, at 12.50am yesterday.

He ran outside and saw a rag on fire on the bonnet.

He said: “It was right outside the house and could have taken up the fence, car, our home and our neighbours’ home.

“I have not got a clue why someone would do this.”
