RANGERS-DAFT lotto yob Michael Carroll terrorised neighbours by torching a caravan during a bizarre bonfire party.

Flames shot 50 ft in the air and thick, toxic smoke had locals running for cover. One neighbour had an asthma attack.

Carroll's friends jeered firefighters who were called to the blaze at his pounds 325,000 Norfolk estate.

Ruth Leeks, 34, who lives two doors away, had an asthma attack as she dragged her son Luke, nine, to safety.

She said: ``I had to rush into the houseto get my inhaler because of the smoke from his fire.

``I feel sorry for the guy because he's obviously so stupid that he has a screw loose and needs help.''

Carroll, 20, won pounds 9.7 million last November and recently invested pounds 1 million in Rangers.

The sectarian thug recently threatened to knife anyone who tried to sponge off him. He has been up in court 30 times and has convictions for theft, fraud, criminal damage and aggravated car theft.
