 Erica Osbourne who is 37, claims she was injured when the flames set light to her jumper and spread to her face.

Metro gathered that the chef who works at the Newport Bay Hotel Restaurant was using a blow torch on the creme brulee desserts which Mrs. Osbourne had ordered.

The flames narrowly missed Mrs. Osbourne’s 10-year-old daughter Abigail as she had gone to get ice cream just two seconds before.

Mrs. Osbourne, who had organized the trip around her birthday, suffered second-degree burns, scarring to her face and lost part of her eyebrows and hair.

‘I had ordered the creme brulee and Abigail had literally just gone to get an ice cream when the chef lit the sugar and a massive fireball came across the counter towards me,’ Mrs. Osbourne said.

‘I was so terrified that I froze to the spot but I remember an intense heat on my face. Abigail told me later that I was screaming ‘help me! I’m on fire’. My jumper and my face were on fire.

‘One of the chefs jumped over the counter and him and a customer bundled me to the ground and rolled me around to put out the flames.

‘I opened my eyes to see everybody staring at me and there were all of these children screaming. My face was really painful and felt very hot.’

Mrs. Osbourne, from Bristol, was treated by paramedics after the incident in February this year before being transferred to hospital where she was kept for several hours.
