A pensioner who deliberately started a fire in a Maidstone block of flats has been jailed for more than 3 years.
James Clarke - who's 80 - caused tens of thousands of pounds worth of damage after setting light to his own home, on April 30th this year.
Firefighters evacuated the building on James Whatman Way.
Clarke was rescued from his third floor flat - and arrested after admitting he'd deliberately caused the fire, believed to have been started on his bed.
He was immediately recalled to prison, having breached a life licence imposed following a previous conviction in 1990 for murder.
He admitted a charge of arson being reckless as to whether life was endangered at Maidstone Crown Court and was jailed for three years and four months.
