    Brit on the run after setting fire to lover in Hanoi

    Brit on the run after setting fire to lover in Hanoi



    Nguyen Hang (pictured), a single mother, suffered horrific injuries in the attack at a tailor shop where she worked in Hanoi - and is in a critical condition with 70 per cent burns in hospital


    Parents of British businessman, 52, on the run in Vietnam after ‘dousing his ex-lover in petrol and turning her into a human fireball’ call him a ‘silly fool’ as they urge their son to hand himself in.

    The parents of a British businessman on the run after allegedly turning a woman he was infatuated with into a human fireball in Vietnam have urged their son to hand himself in.
    Gary Iredale, 52, from Blackpool, doused his former lover in petrol and set her alight in a jealous rage after she ended their relationship and told him she was in love with another man, it is claimed.

    Nguyen Hang suffered horrific injuries in the attack at a tailor shop where she worked in Hanoi – and is in a critical condition in hospital with 70 per cent burns to her body.
    Police issued a warrant for vending machine boss Iredale’s arrest after he fled Vietnam on Monday after the attack.
    He is said to have flown to Thailand and is now believed to be hiding in the Philippines.
    His ‘heartbroken’ father Roy called him a ‘silly fool’, adding: ‘If you do a thing like that, you have to stand by it and take your punishment.
    ‘It is so unlike him. He was the life and soul of the party, he always was. Everybody liked him wherever he went. I think he should hand himself in.’
    Gary had returned home to Blackpool, Lancs, before Christmas to visit his father who had been in hospital following a fall.

    Roy added: ‘Gary seemed besotted by her. He was always praising her and on the phone to her all the time he was here.’


    Gary Iredale, 52, from Blackpool.

    Roy said his son moved to Hanoi, Vietnam, three years ago to teach English. He has Australian citizenship and still owns a house in the country.
    He met and married an Australian woman while he was travelling, but they have now divorced and she lives in India.
    His mother Nora added: ‘I feel sick and can’t believe it’s happening. I never thought he would do something like that. What has he done? I am heartbroken.

    Brother Martin said: ‘He is not a violent person. It is so out of character. It is unreal. I wasn’t aware that he knew anyone in the Philippines.’

    What happened to the Brit lad that murdered his teacher co-worker in Burma last year and then fled to Thailand? Was a drugged up space-cadet. Did he ever get caught?

    'Silly fool' does not quite have the right gravitas for describing a kunt who would do something like that.

    Hope her family gets hold of him before the law does.

    So? The attack took place on the 15th. He was reportedly arrested on the 18th. The story made it to the English language press just after that. What's your point?

    This may be a difficult concept for you to grasp but quite often things happen before they're reported.

    Fleeing to Thailand seems to be the historic fashion.

    I can think of other ways to describe it.

    I hope he's looking forward to a world of pain.

    It's worth noting that we live in the information age, and it's right to be cautious about journalistic reports, which can contain omissions and errors that are important.

    The Kuleshov effect used in cinema, where you place an image next to another and infer a connection, is abused by journalists a lot, and can be relied upon by an assailant to frame another.

    I wonder though, is part of why this is shocking is because of the presentation of a alleged perpetrator who is "one of us"; but if the perpetrator wasn't one of us, and was a local or other developing world person, would we be so shocked?

    Most convincing lies contain some truth in them, how do we know that the "jealous lover" was the initial photo? Could it have possibly been a local husband, relative, or spurned other?

    Not saying whether the info presented is or isn't true, just saying that we don't know how much we do or don't know...

    The sad thing is, that we don't know if the local cops will be any good at investigating; it's pretty grim that lives can be ruined so easily and casually these days, in any country...

    There's something about the way people react to information that they don't like, expectations and assumptions of rights that can turn seemingly typical people into something else.

    Worst of all none of it undoes the injuries. or helps the mother and child with the rest of their lives...

    CSI TD will be on their way shortly, I'm sure...

    Despicable man. I hope wherever he is, the arms of the law catch up (or has caught up) with him.

    Poor lady. I hope she recovers from her injuries...
