A crowdfunding campaign has been set up to help a disabled man whose car was destroyed in a petrol bomb attack.

Father-of-one Jason Clarke, who suffers from emphysema, woke up yesterday to find his red Vauxhall Astra had been set alight.

The 45-year-old, who lives on Clifton Street in Norwich, said the vehicle had been his 'lifeline' due to his limited mobility.

He used it to take his 11-year-old daughter to school, take his two dogs out for exercise and go food shopping.

A JustGiving page has now been set up by Matthew Tucker, from Eaton, to help raise £5,000 for Mr Clarke to purchase a new vehicle.
