A man has admitted during a court hearing that he deliberately set fire to a house in Haverhill.

Pawel Rozanski, 38, appeared at Ipswich Crown court on Tuesday (24) where he pleaded guilty to arson being reckless as to whether life was endangered, assault by beating and possession of a bladed article in a public place.

Rozanski was arrested on the evening of March 9 following an incident at a house in The Keep, off Burton End.

Police had gone to the property following reports that a man was acting in a threatening manner.

An hour later firefighters were called to the house to deal with a fire in a first floor bedroom and which it was later confirmed had been started deliberately.

It took three fire crews from Haverhill and Clare almost an hour to bring the situation under control at the mid terrace house.

At the hearing, Judge David Goodin told Rozanski that he will be brought back to the same court in May to be sentenced.

Rozanski will remain remanded in custody until his next court appearance.

Judge Goodin warned Rozanski, of The Keep, that all sentencing options, including immediate imprisonment, would be under consideration by the court.
