Workington man charged with arson with intent to endanger life

A Workington man has appeared in court charged with arson with intent to endanger life following a blaze on the street where he lives.

Paul Andrew Lord, 45, of Shore Road, entered no plea when he appeared before district judge Gerald Chalk today.

Lord was remanded in custody until November 4, when he is due to appear at Carlisle Crown Court for a preliminary hearing.

He was charged with intending to destroy or damage property and intending by destruction to endanger lives.

A Ford Mondeo Zetec, a Fiat Multipla and a Seat Arosa were set alight at around 4.15am on Sunday, which also caused damage to two nearby houses.

Michael Woolaghan, for Lord, said his client’s appearance at Carlisle Crown Court next month would be to fix the date for a plea.

Yes - we shouldn't have to pay

No - we'll just end up paying the county in some other way, like council tax
