Family 'close' after setting each other on fire

A family are "really close" after setting each other on fire.

The Stannage family from Barnsley in South Yorkshire regularly perform death-defying stunts on each other after starting International Stannage Stunt Team over a decade ago, but they believe the risky spectacles have brought them closer together.

Dad Mark, 45, - who performs with 48-year-old wife Janine, their son Aaron, 20, and his girlfriend Megan Murphy, 19 - told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Of course this job is dangerous, but as family we all trust each other to be safe.

"We're really close - I think this helps bring us together.

"In one stunt - the exploding coffin - they blow me up with a load of fireworks while Aaron jumps through the explosion on a motorbike."
