An inquest into the death of a Worcester man, who was killed after an arson attack on his home, heard today that he was unlawfully killed.

Andrew Heath, aged 52, was found dead at his flat in Warndon last December.

The coroner ruled Mr Heath died as a result of the products of combustion from a fire started deliberately in a wheelie bin outside his home.

Police explain why the reward has increased

"Whilst our investigation is still very active and there are still various lines of inquiry we are following, we just feel that by increasing it we'll give someone the incentive to come forward to try and progress this situation for the sake of Andrew's family.

Clearly they're very upset by what's happened and we want to try and give them some answers"

Detective Inspector Neil Austin, West Mercia Police
