    BBC Local Live, Lincolnshire

    A 'penny pinching' landlord has been jailed for five months after failing to equip his properties with adequate fire safety.

    Around 20 people escaped a fire at the property on Bursar Street in Cleethorpes after a fire started on the ground floor - but no fire alarm sounded in August 2014.

    Peter Kelson QC said the Ken Newsham was ‘more concerned with his own wealth than the welfare of his tenants’ and said it was ‘good fortune that no-one died’

    Landlord Ken Newsham today pleaded guilty to four counts of not providing an adequate fire assessment, working fire alarms, or sufficient fire doors.

    He was also ordered to pay £100,000 in costs.
