Body found after Darlington explosion

A body has been found following an explosion in Darlington. Emergency services were called to Lewes Road just before 3am on June 12. A house was on fire and a body was discovered upstairs. Several neighbouring properties have been evacuated and the road is cordoned off.

"A joint investigation is under way involving the police and Fire and Rescue. At this stage it would be premature to speculate on the cause."
