The suspects then made off on foot heading for the main road.

DC Dan Ashton, of Kirklees District CID, said: “The suspects involved have acted with no thought as to the danger their actions have posed, as demonstrated by the fact that the fire they set spread to a building.

“We are releasing CCTV images of the incident to illustrate what took place and while they clearly are very dark they do show a general outline of the persons we would want to speak with.

“I would ask anyone who can assist our enquiries to contact Kirklees District CID on 101 referencing crime number 13220037390.

“Information can also be given online at www.westyorkshire.police.uk/101livechat using the same reference number or anonymously to the independent Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555111."
