Great Abington house fire: Woman dies at scene

A woman has died in a house fire in a Cambridgeshire village.

Firefighters arrived at the two-storey house on South Road, in Great Abington, on Thursday afternoon to find smoke pouring from the roof, part of which was removed to gain access to the fire.

Seven crews were called to the house which was described by a senior officer as "full of combustible material".

No further details were given of the woman but her next of kin has been informed.
