: "Animal rights extremists have targeted the widow of a former pharmaceuticals agent who has been dead for more than a year.
Kathryn Grant, 51, and her teenage son were at home when the family car was torched by fanatics who later boasted on a website 'your decisions will come back to haunt you forever even when you have gone'.
Mrs Grant said: 'I cannot believe they have done this knowing Alex was no longer managing director.'
Alexander Grant, 49, the former managing director of the UK division of Roche, the Swiss pharmaceutical conglomerate, died of an unknown heart condition shortly after he and his wife celebrated their 28th wedding anniversary in New York in March last year.
Roche has long been a target of animal rights activists for its links to Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS), a research laboratory that has been one of the most high-profile subjects of vilification by campaigners.
Sussex Police confirmed yesterday that they were hunting the arsonists after the fire brigade was called to put out the blazing car near Mrs Grant's home on 13 October. The BMW X5 went up in flames after a fire was started beneath it."
