The inquest into the death of firefighter Stephen Hunt was told how he and a fellow firefighter lost their way inside a burning shop in Manchester.

The 38-year-old former soldier died after being pulled from a blaze at Paul's Hair World on Oldham Road in 2013.

The jury heard that Hunt had entered the building with his colleague Jeremy Jones, both wearing breathing gear, but the smoke was too thick for the men to see and they became trapped.

Hunt was found collapsed inside the building 40 minutes after he entered and died later in hospital.
