A woman's body's been found after a fire at a sheltered housing complex near Aberystwyth.
It broke out in a flat at Glyn Padarn, Llanbadarn Fawr, at around half past eight.
The complex was evacuated and 27 people, some disabled, were taken to Aberystwyth Leisure centre.
All but two are now back home and an investigation's underway.
Researchers at Aberystwyth and Bangor, along with colleagues at Cambridge and Leicester, have found the speckled sea louse has two body clocks.
Writing in the journal Current Biology, they've confirmed the existence for the first time of a body clock which follows the 12.4 hour cycle of the tide.
That's as well as the one which most land-based animals have, including humans, which reacts to light and dark; the circadian clock.
They say the discovery of the circadian clock was a major breakthrough in biology so finding the tidal clock presents a new perspective on how organisms define biological time.
It could have implications for the welfare and productivity of commercially important marine animals.

A group of teenage surfers who got into difficulty in waters off Llanrhystud had to be rescued on Saturday afternoon - during an RNLI fundraising event.
The annual Flag Day collection and Aberystwyth Ship 2 Shore festival was in full swing when the four youngsters found themselves being carried out to sea due to strong wind and currents.
RNLI volunteers at the fundraising event had to flag down taxis to take them to the lifeboat station, where they were able to answer the call for help.
The crew of the Atlantic 85 Class lifeboat Spirit of Friendship then quickly rescued the surfers, who were cold and exhausted but otherwise unharmed.
A spokesperson for Aberystwyth RNLI said: "RNLI crews never know when the call for help will come, but this was one of the more unusual 'pager moments' witnessing our crew all arrive by taxi at the same time. We'd like to track down the drivers to thank them for their kindness.
"Today’s rescue was a timely reminder of the important work that is undertaken by the volunteer RNLI Lifeboat Crews, which is reliant on the continued support of the public for our fundraising activities."

He said action was needed as the land had become a source of complaints about anti-social behaviour.
