A man's been charged with arson with intent to danger life following a fire in Newark.

We were called to Barnby Gate along with the fire service just after 1am yesterday (Saturday 23 December).

A police investigation was launched and Joshua Nicholson was arrested. The 18-year-old, of Barnby Gate in Newark, was remanded in custody to appear at Nottingham Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

No one was injured in the blaze.

101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
