A man accused of arson appeared before Lincoln Crown Court in custody today (Monday) after a warrant was issued for his arrest when he failed to appear at a previous hearing on Friday.

Keith Prescott, 53, of Station Road, Grantham, is charged with an offence of arson alleged to have occurred on September 29.

No plea was taken and Prescott was readmitted to bail after the court was told his failure to attend was as a result of medical problems arising from injuries he received in the fire which led to the charge being brought.

Judge Michael Heath adjourned the hearing until 22 July.
