Matches matches never touch

I had to call the police out to the new park outside Windmill School again today after my children came running home to tell me that youths (or "yobs" as one described them) were using aerosol cans as flame throwers, trying to set fire to a bench.

Let's just forget about the fact they were trying to set fire to a bench and concentrate on the safety aspect - they were posing a massive risk to their own safety and the safety of the people around them.  If you've ever wondered what happens when an aerosol can meets fire, watch this video:


Now imagine the can in a child's hand.
