Pensioners set on fire inside car and left to ‘burn alive’

Two pensioners have suffered horrific injuries after being set on fire inside a car and left to ‘burn alive’.

Grandparents Martha and George Stewart were rammed off the road by another vehicle and forced into a ditch.

Their car was then doused in petrol before being set alight – with the couple still inside.

The pair are thought to have become unconscious before being rescued, reports the Daily Record.

George, 67, suffered severe burns, while Martha, 61, was treated for a head injury.


The sickening attack on the couple, who are travellers, happened in Longman Caravan Park in Inverness on Sunday August 19.

Photographs have now been released by police of a father and son who they want to speak to in relation to the incident.

The pair have been named as Donald Stewart snr, 47, and Donald Stewart jnr, 24.

Members of the public are being urged not to approach them.

Police say the men are based in the Moray and Highland areas but may have travelled to other areas of Scotland or the UK.

Donald Snr is described as white, approximately 5ft 11in tall, with fair/blonde hair cut very short.


He has tattoos on his right arm including ‘Kelly,’ a heart scroll and an image of a devil.

Donald Stewart Jnr is described as being 24 years old with fair/red hair, a thin build and psoriasis patches on his face.

Both are known as by the nickname “Blocker”.

Detective Inspector Eddie Ross said: “Significant police enquiries have been carried out in relation to this incident and in an effort to trace the two men.

“I would ask people not approach either man if you believe you have seen them. Instead please call Police Scotland as soon as you can.”
