Families in Plymouth have been told they may have to wait months before they find out the extent of the damage caused by a major fire.

Thirty people were left homeless by last week's blaze in Barne Barton.

Housing bosses say they are working hard to help and are continuing to cover accommodation costs for those affected by the fire.

However, some tenants have told ITV News they are scared to return and want the authorities to do more.
