British tourist set on fire

Stuart Feltham, 23, from Swindon, Wiltshire, suffered second-degree burns
after a 26-year-old woman allegedly poured a highly flammable alcoholic
drink over him and set fire to him with a lighter.

The woman will appear in court today in the city of Iraklion, in northern
Crete, charged with assault.

According to reports, she said she was acting in self-defence after the man
exposed himself to a number of women in a bar, then fondled her against her
wishes.

The story has made national headlines in Greece, where some have hailed the
woman as a heroine.

A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: “We can confirm that in the early
hours of Tuesday a 23-year-old British male national was assaulted in Crete.

“We understand he suffered burns on his chest and abdomen.

“He has been receiving consular assistance.”
