The former licensee of the Premier Hotel has plead guilty to charges relating to the arson of the historic Albany pub.

Graeme Cooper was schedule to appear on the first day of an eight-day Supreme Court trial in Albany on Monday morning after originally pleading not guilty to charges of fraud and arson over the fire in April 2016.

However, the court heard he had changed his plea to guilty on Sunday.

More to come.
