This is the dramatic moment a car was allegedly set alight in a quiet housing estate in South Dublin.

Residents in De Selby in Citywest are believed to have captured footage of the car rolling through their estate yesterday evening while children were out playing nearby.

According to reports, the car burst into flames after it was sent on fire by its passengers – who fled the area soon afterwards.

Heavy black smoke can be seen coming of the vehicle as it slowly comes to a halt shortly after being set alight.

Other motorists can be seen passing-by while, according to witnesses, a group of children where playing only metres away.
