Chris Packham, 60, has been left worried about what’s next after a terrifying arson attack at his home. The beloved wildlife presenter shared his concerns in a Twitter video detailing the attack.

Springwatch host Chris has detailed how masked men left a Range Rover outside his house on Friday morning.

They set it on fire in a dangerous act, which left the presenter having to call the fire brigade.

Now, Chris has shared how he will keep campaigning following what has happened.

In a video posted to his Twitter, he admitted he may have been targeted by trolls who opposed his anti-hunting views.

He said this wasn’t the first time he’s been targeted as people have previously left dead animals at his home.

Chris also admitted he was concerned about what actions will come next.

Speaking to his 491,000 followers, he said: “Now it’s escalated as they’ve taken to damaging the property.

“And I wonder where it’s going? I mean what happens next?

“Do they burn the house down? Do they beat up my stepdaughter?

“Do they cut the brake lines on my partner’s car?

“Or do they come for me directly? I mean, are they going to kill me at some point?

“I think it’s a fair question.”

In the tweet alongside his video, he wrote: “Harassment, relentless abuse, intimidation and now arson.

“And what next . . . ? I will not be cowed, I will not buckle, but can I ask for your help?

“If you are an @nationaltrust member please sign to end hunting here and now.”

The wildlife presenter yesterday opened up to the Mirror about the incident.

He said: “I’d gone to bed and absolutely crashed out, literally crashed out, zonked.

“The gate isn’t visible from the bedroom but of course when it exploded, it went off with a massive bang which woke me and the dogs up.

“It was an inferno.

“The neighbours called the fire brigade and they turned up and put it out.

“The police turned up a bit later.”
