Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service has released harrowing CCTV footage showing the last moments of a Staffordshire woman who dies in a fire.
The CCTV clip shows the woman, who was not identified, opening her flat door to be met by thick smoke.
She walks into her home and those are the last steps she ever took.
A short time later, firefighters arrive at the scene.
Their figures can be seen carrying the woman out of her home, who sadly did not survive.
It only takes two to three breaths in a smoke filled room to be overcome by deadly fumes, which leads to Carbon Monoxide poisoning and can cause death.
