A white supremacist’s plan to set fire to a synagogue literally blew up in his face as the flames flew back out of the window and engulfed him.
Tristan Morgan appeared at the Central Criminal Court on Friday (July 5) where he pleaded guilty to arson and two charges under the Terrorism Act in relation to the fire at Exeter Synagogue on July 21, 2018.
CCTV footage showed the 52-year-old pouring petrol on the religious building before setting it alight, however the flames blazed out of the window right into Morgan’s face, causing his hat to fly off.
According to Devon and Cornwall Police, Morgan was first charged in connection with the fire on the day of the incident, a date which coincided with a Jewish feast day commemorating disasters, including the Holocaust.
