An Ipswich man accused of an arson attack on a house in Spring Road, Ipswich, appeared before magistrates in Ipswich this morning.

Robert King, 38, of Spring Road in Ipswich was charged with arson without lawful excuse at a property in Spring Road in the early hours of Friday morning, and did so recklessly endangering the life of another person.

Michael Crimp, prosecuting, said he was “alleged to have set fire when one of the occupants was present in another room.”

Addressing King at South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court on Saturday, chairwoman of the bench Anne Tyler said: “We are sending this matter on the crown court and you will next appear on the 4th December, and that will happen via video link unless instructed otherwise.”

Bail was not granted, with King being remanded in custody until his next court appearance.
