The 28-year-old from Helmsley will appear in court later this month to face a charge of committing arson with recklessness as to whether property would be destroyed or life endangered at The Star Inn at Harome in November 2021.

The Grade II-listed 14th-century pub in the North York Moors suffered over £2million worth of damage in the fire, which destroyed its thatched roof.

The Michelin-starred restaurant is owned by Andrew Pern, the chef from Whitby who has built up a hospitality empire in Yorkshire.

The pub was closed for around a year for repairs but has now re-opened.
