Five-year-old girl battling cancer viciously attacked by yobs who tried to set her on fire
By DAILY MAIL REPORTER 22nd August 2009
A girl of five who is battling cancer is recovering today after two boys sprayed an aerosol in her face and tried to set her alight.
Scarlett Hellewell had to be rescued by neighbours when the boys pinned her down and sprayed the deodorant in her face in Halifax, West Yorks.
She escaped with just bruises after the deodorant failed to ignite.

A spokesman for West Yorkshire Police said: 'It is reported the girl was playing when she was approached by two young boys who kicked and punched her before spraying an aerosol in her face and attempting to set her alight. The match did not ignite.'
The two young boys, believed to be only 10 and seven, ran off when someone came to Scarlett's help on Tuesday evening. Officers are appealing for witnesses.

England is a disgusting third world toilet being Islamified.
5 is too old to throw in the closet and too young to be a contributing member of society. Those bys were just trying to save some government money is all, just being good socialists.
was this in a park?? well, duh, probably ain’t got no private property over there any more huh?
Yeah, what the hell is wrong in the UK? Is it the education system or the apparent lack of morals in society?
Any wagers on the backgrounds of these two cretins?
West Yorkshire I think is in the Midlands which is becoming a state of Pakistan. Heavy Islamification.
Thank God my decendants on one side left there 200+ years ago.
The leftist British govt has allowed asylum seekers (illegals) to flood and given them jobs over the indigenous population. This is turning the poor white population into a feral bunch. Obama is running the UK playbook to a T.
The way the UK is any more, the cretins could be 4th generation welfare white trash.
Compassion for terrorist, robbers, and punks really works over there huh?
Sounds to me like A CLOCKWORK ORANGE.
But then it seems to me that the UK should have seen this coming because they are so much more of a permissive society than we are.
With as liberal as the UK has gotten, I have no sympathy whatsoever. If this is the kind of society and government the British people want then they must also suffer the consequences.
It’s no longer Christian.
Old enough to attack a 5 year old equals old enough to be someone’s b!1c# in prison for the rest of their hopefully short useless lives...
Doesn’t this girl have a father? They are selling their toys for a holiday? No father around to go to work and save for a holiday? No father around to protect them?
And what about the horrible little pukes that did this... is there a father around to discipline them and teach them compassion?
I raised my daughter in the UK, during the end of the Thatcher years... it turned downhill quickly, a huge counsel estate with the occasional normal family scattered around.
I guess so. They have ‘evolved’ and become more accepting of others. Kinda what the libs and moderates want to do here.
About 10 years ago, I was in Spain and met a British tourist headed to a museum in the same somewhat out of the way place. We couldn’t find the museum, although we were pretty sure we were in the right neighborhood. Unfortunately, all the shops were closed because it was the siesta.
Finally, I saw some boys, about 12 yrs old, kicking a ball around at the end of the street, and I told my British friend that I was going to go ask them. She looked at me in horror and said that I was very brave and she wasn’t going to go with me. I had no idea what she meant.
She stood at the end of the street, I asked them for directions (I speak Spanish), they told me, and I went back to tell this to my British friend. She told me that in England, you would never go up to a group of kids playing on the street because they would turn on you and beat you to death just for the fun of it. And then she told me about a friend of hers who had been beaten into a coma for asking directions from some neighborhood children.
England has a problem with its Muslims, but I think it also has a problem with its own native born and bred population. Thank you, big government and socialism.
“Yeah, what the hell is wrong in the UK? Is it the education system or the apparent lack of morals in society? “
Their socialist ways encouraged the breakdown of the family with a entire generation of yobs and chavs growing up on the dole, thinking they are entitled to freeload and never have to face any consequences for bad behaviour.
“Life at the Bottom” by Theodore Dalrymple and his occasional editorials speak of how bad it is in England.
The US usually is not too far behind the UK. Breakdowns in family. culture, Judeo-Christian heritage, and law and order have consequences for an entire nation.
The way the UK is any more, the cretins could be 4th generation welfare white trash.
You’re probably right...a can of deodorant would not be in most Islamic bathrooms.
This is a crime against children!
A very telling story... England also has one of the strictest gun controls in the world... how ironic...
When I lived there...
kids used to break into our garage and steal our car. They would come from Redcar to our town, drink in the pubs and steal our car for a ride home. It got to a point where I just left it open so I did not have to pay for anymore windows or locks and we stopped replacing the starter thingy, I used to start my own car with a screwdriver. yes, that is true.
We found the car in the same place every time. We didn’t even bother reporting it after a while bcuz the police (who are as nice as can be, btw) could do nothing for us.
On one occasion, I stayed up and watched and when I saw them, called the cops who arrived within minutes & caught them red handed. They were juveniles so the cops had to let them go. No charges, no arresting, no nothing. And we were not allowed to ask their names or their parents name. not allowed to give info since they were minors.
the cops told us that i should drop my idea of getting a dog bcuz if i got caught letting the dog out to purposely hurt a child, i could ‘get done’. same if i waited and beat the crap out of them. In the end, we build a 10 foot brick wall around our property with a huge wooden gate.
When I went back, many of my old friends told me that the kids were out of control and they feared them, since no punishment comes to them.
Just trying to save the health care system some bucks, ya know.
I would be happy to pull the switch on these basturds myself.
Yeah, it’s been downhill ever since the “glory days” of Sid Viscious & Johnny Rotten. (puke)
My heart goes out to her and her family.
SOMETHING ABOUT THIS STORY SMELLS FUNNY!
I WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED IF MOMMY IS ARRESTED FOR REPORTING A HOAX
NO INJURY- NO WITNESSES- NO SUSPECTS- ODD STORY
LOOKING FOR PAYOUT
It says that neighbors, not the mother, stopped it.
But these stories of preteen savagery have become downright routine in Old Blighty for some years now.
Do you think she may have trained the kid to lie to the cops? Wouldn’t there be evidence of the lighter fuel?
Yep, that’s how it works there nowadays, Little Alex and his droogies can do as they please and fear no consequences.
The late conservative columnist Samuel Francis referred to this state of affairs as “anarcho-tyranny”.
My son’s best friend was sent by his Calvary Chapel to England to be a Missionary! Only 3% of the population in the U.K. go to church . Very politally correct over there. Very sad.
I believe it!
Many countries in Europe used to be great. But since they have joined the EU, they have given up their own individual identity and their individual cultures and societies have slid into the slippery slope of socialism and the deep abyss from which I doubt they can ever recover.
We must never let that happen here.
We have our guns and are not giving them up without one hell of a fight.That is a major difference.
Children who do such horrific crimes need to be put away forever. They’re what’s known as a *bad seed*. There’s no rehabilitating this kind of person.
Really a sad commentary on the decline of the country that gave the world English Common Law. I wonder if we're far behind.
Time to bring back draw and quartering and put the head on a pike.
"Yeah...I was cured."
And does anyone ever hear 'Singin' In The Rain' the same way ever again?
Have they ruled out the Public Health Committee?
My brother and I used to play blackjack in Vegas, counted cards and we would talk backwards to each other at the same table to pass info.....as to how many Aces and face cards were left....I MUST BE SLIPPING...WAS NOT FAMILIAR WITH THIS ENGLISH TERM!
The antithesis of what a good boy should be - rude,obnoxious, violent and stupid. Formed by spelling ‘boy’ bacwards, it was coined in England in the 18th century as it was very popular amongst upper classes to speak backwards at the time.
Have you seen that boy? He’s a yob
” Yeah, its been downhill ever since the glory days of Sid Viscious & Johnny Rotten. (puke)
Actually , compared to Britain 2009 - 1979 WAS the glory days . Between 1976-1984 I spent quite a bit of time in England , and not just in London . Yes , the place was “ grilled “ but as Basil Fawlty would say “ there was still life in the old place “ . Never had a problem anywhere I went . Was I just lucky ?
after seeing this picture, im cringing in sadness that a child like this could be abused like that. :(
