Two teens have been jailed for over two years after they admitted causing a fire inside a home - being reckless as to whether life is endangered.

Freddie Holt, of Winton Drive in Croxley Green, and Kane Pinnock, of Rickmansworth Road in Watford, were sentenced at St Albans Crown Court on Friday, April 26.

The 19-year-olds were each given two years and three months' custody at a young offenders' institution after the arson in Malvern Way, Croxley Green, on August 22, 2021.

Holt and Pinnock had pleaded guilty on March 12.

Hertfordshire Police said it happened inside of the house and had damaged the whole front of the building, curtains, window and a chair inside.

The case was initially heard at St Albans Magistrates' Court but was sent to the crown court for sentencing due to its severity.
