Teenager on trial accused of starting 'devastating' mill fire that caused £500,000 damage


A vulnerable 19-year-old Bradford man, who is fascinated with fire, was behind a major mill fire in the city which caused £500,000 of damage last year, a court heard.

Hamza Nadeem went on trial at Bradford Crown Court yesterday to face a charge of arson relating to a fire at mill in Rebecca Street, which was home to a solicitor’s firm he had an alleged "grievance” against.

Nadeem, who has learning difficulties and lived in a hostel for young people, denies setting the fire, which caused £500,000 of damage to the mill.


Prosecutor Glenn Parsons told the jury that the prosecution’s case was that the defendant was guilty of an offence of arson.

He said that the fire was caused by setting some tyres alight underneath the mill building, which was home to a number of firms including solicitors YA & Co.

“This defendant may have had some sort of grievance with the solicitor - real or imagined. Imagined, because the solicitors had no knowledge of him.”

He described how a support worker at the Coates Street hostel off Manchester Road where Nadeem was living, spoke to the defendant in the early hours of the morning on December 19 last year.
