A shocking video shows the moment a Southampton man set his ex-partner's BMW alight in a 'revenge attack' at KFC. 

Scott Lanaghan, 33, was jailed for two years on Tuesday for the arson at the car park of KFC in Thornhill. 

Southampton Crown Court heard how Lanaghan targetted his ex's car at her place of work and used a hammer to smash the window. 

Footage of the incident shows him approaching the vehicle at around 8pm on March 8 before throwing a Molotov cocktail inside.

The car was written off with the victim's insurance paying for the damage. 

Lanaghan pleaded guilty to arson and two counts of threatening another with an offensive weapon. 

This relates to an incident shortly afterwards which saw him wave a hammer in the direction of two KFC employees who had chased him. 

Sentencing, Judge Nicholas Rowland said the incident "has all the hallmarks of a revenge attack".
