A judge has ordered a psychiatric report to be prepared on a Felixstowe man who started a fire which caused £32,000 damage to stables and a barn in Levington.

Before Ipswich Crown Court via a prison video link on Monday (November 30) was Robert Schwer, 55, of Brightwell Close, Felixstowe.

He pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to arson by setting fire to stables and an attached barn belonging to Julie Schwer on October 15, causing £32,000 damage.

Judge David Goodin adjourned sentence on Schwer until February 4 to allow a psychiatric report to be prepared on him and remanded him in custody.
