Merseyside man charged over Llandudno Junction house fire

A 28-year-old Merseyside man has appeared in court accused of being involved in starting a house fire in North Wales last Friday night.

Jamie Chesterton, of Maple Avenue, Haydock, is charged with arson with intent to endanger life or being reckless whether life would be endangered at a property in Avallon Avenue, Llandudno Junction.

Defence solicitor Sion Hughes made no application for bail at Llandudno magistrates’ court. Chesterton was remanded in custody until June 6 at Caernarfon crown court.

On Monday, two other men, from St Helens, appeared in court following the blaze.

Prosecutor Sara Worland said a woman had crawled across a roof to escape the fire.
