Tributes to firefighter killed in Manchester blaze

The family of the firefighter killed tackling a blaze in Manchester last night say he was "an old fashioned gentleman who lived to serve his country".

Stephen Hunt, 38, was part of a team tackling the fire on the city's Oldham Street when he and a colleague got into trouble. Both were rescued, but the father of two later died in hospital.

Two 15-year-old girls arrested earlier on suspicion of manslaughter have been released on bail. ITV News reporter Ben Chapman reports.
