Islamic shop fire man dies a day into jail term

Islamic Relief shop
Rose targeted the charity shop in Glasgow's Pollokshields area

A man who was jailed for 15 months for setting fire to an Islamic Relief Centre in Glasgow has been found dead in prison - one day into his sentence.

Stuart Rose died in Barlinnie Prison on Thursday. A fatal accident inquiry will be held at a later date.

The 26-year-old admitted torching bags of donations in the doorway of the charity centre in Albert Drive, Pollokshields, on 2 July 2009.

He was sentenced at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Wednesday.

Rose was captured on CCTV setting the fire and was traced through the taxi firm which collected him from the scene.

He later told police he "was just having a laugh".
