Woman feared dead after New Year's Eve fire

An woman is feared to have died in a fire that destroyed a bungalow in Looe, Cornwall.

Upon arrival, fire crews said they found the house, in Barbican Hill to be "completely alight" just before 8pm on New Year's Eve. By 11.45pm crews say the bungalow was fully gutted.

Firefighters struggled to initially enter the building because of the intense heat and collapsed roof.

Emergency services are still trying to find the occupant of the bungalow, who is understood to be in her 60s and lived there alone with two dogs.
