Man who set fire to NHS centre given indefinite hospital order

A man who set fire to an NHS centre in Tamworth has been given an indefinite hospital order under the Mental Health Act.

Zoltan Rozsa, 44, had started the fire in the West Wing of the George Bryan Centre in February last year.

The fire was in Room 18, where he had been staying.

His mattress had been turned on its side with a blanket on top which was on fire.

Officers believed he set fire to a blanket in the room he was staying.

The wing cares for adults who are mentally unwell.

Appearing at Stafford Crown Court today (March 23) Roza, of no fixed address, was found not fit to enter a plea based on medical evidence.

Rozsa’s actions resulted in extensive damage to the west wing of the centre, putting lives at risk.
