A homeless man nicknamed the “dirtiest man in Europe” has died in the farmhouse where he lived in the Czech Republic.

Ludvik Dolezal, who was 60, lived on an abandoned farm and had a psychological condition which resulted in him burning his possessions and many other things.

Dolezal burned tires and plastic and slept covered in the ashes, leaving him sooty and black.

The Mirror reports that firefighters were called out on multiple occasions to control the fires he started but no one was ever hurt in the blazes.

Dolezal lived off benefits paid by the Czech government but was not given the money due to fears he would burn it.

Police spokesperson Lenka Buryskova said that an autopsy would be held but said no suspicious circumstances were thought to be at play.
