London – The man who became Europe’s dirtiest man, who love to sleep buried in a pile of hot ash, has been revealed.
Ludvik Dolezal, 58, from Czech Republic, burns whatever he finds to create his ‘bed’ before crawling into it to sleep. He has even burnt his mattress and duvet in order to achieve the perfect mound of fiery remains.
He decided to leave his job a year ago and after that live with fire and ashes become his life’s goal.
Despite the freezing cold winters of his home town, Novy Bydzov, in the Czech Republic, he wears just a fleece, which is dyed black from the smoke.
Dolezal, who passers-by often refer to as a devil from fairytales, said: ‘A year ago I simply decided to quit my job. Since then I’ve staying here with the fire.
He said ‘Every night I lay down with hot ash in my clothes and cover myself to keep warm. I look like hell then, I had everything – jacket, boots, mattresses and even a duvet. But I burnt everything because there was nothing else to keep the fire going.
