Man in court over Leicester factory fire
A man accused of setting fire to a rooftop shisha cafe has been bailed to appear for trial at Leicester Crown Court.
Imtiyas Patel (28), of Herschell Street, off London Road, Leicester, attended the city magistrates' court today charged with arson with intent or being reckless as to whether life was endangered.
The blaze took place at the Cloud Nine Shisha Cafe, in Leicester, on October 25 last year.
Around 60 firefighters attended the blaze which destroyed the bar and smoking area on the roof of the Curzonia knitwear factory in Birstall Street, St Matthews, and part of the factory building's fourth floor.
