A man has deliberately lit himself and his car on fire in front of horrified diners while screaming about Victoria’s Covid-19 vaccine mandates. 

The man emerged from a vehicle engulfed in flames near Church St in Richmond  about 8pm on Saturday.

Police officers and firefighters doused the man with water to extinguish the flames.

Around five witnesses restrained the man before officers pinned him to the ground.

The man was then escorted by officers into an ambulance.

One witness who helped restrain the man, told The Herald Sun the man’s flesh was burning before the flames were put out with water.
