Concerning footage shows the moment a man attempting to throw a flaming object in what appears to be mid-argument – but he ends up dropping it at his feet.
Fire erupted on the pavement outside a residential property on Gresham Road, Neasden, when what looks like a Molotov cocktail dropped on the floor yesterday (June 14).
Yelling can be heard in the background before the man is seen dashing across the road to try and throw the fiery object.
