£40,000 arson charge

Have your say

Thursday: A man has denied arson – destroying a £40,000 motor home by fire at a farm in The Fen, Baston – on October 27 last year.

The Iveco motor home belonged to Kevin McGlen.

Julian Pettican (53), of Peterborough Road, Eye, also pleaded not guilty to a second arson offence, destroying clothes worth £11,000 belonging to his wife, Lesley, at Eye on October 21.

Spalding magistrates today adjourned the hearing to July 18 for committal papers to be prepared for a hearing at Lincoln Crown Court.

Pettican had his bail extended.
