Tim Pole prosecutes Million Pound arson

Tue, 02 Nov 2010

Three arsonists who destroyed a Midland mansion that had been seized from a fraudster have been jailed for a combined 15 years.
 
Two of the men were injured as an explosion ripped through the country home in Aldridge after they started the fire. The mansion in Chester Road had been valued at around £1 million and was due to be sold.
 
Stafford Crown Court heard the arsonists travelled from Nottingham and doused the empty property in petrol.
 
A judge said he believed they had been employed to burn down the building.
