Mold Crown Court heard today that 21-year-old trainee veterinary nurse Lauren Edwards was so depressed she started the fire in order to kill herself.

Wayne Brown was walking past the house in Gwersyllt, near Wrexham when he heard the sound of a smoke alarm. He could see smoke coming down the stairs, and the heat was so intense that it was melting the door frames.

He roused Miss Edwards, got her out, put a coat around her and also raised the alarm. Judge Walters said today “He is to be commended for his public spiritedness.”

Edwards was jailed for two years after she admitted arson and being reckless whether life would be endangered, at the home she shared with her mother and brother.
