Real Crisps fire: man to be sentenced tomorrow

The Judge, Mr Philip Richards, said the fire was a "very irresponsible act" with "consequences that were devastating". He acknowledged that Mr Goulding has considerable learning difficulties which is why he took so long to accept responsibility.

Mr Goulding has been remanded in custody and will be sentenced tomorrow at 2pm at Newport Crown Court.
