A woman who was badly burned when petrol ignited as she was pouring it into a jug in York remains critically ill in hospital.

Diane Hill, 46, suffered 40% burns in the accident in the kitchen at her home in Moorgate, Acomb, last Thursday.

The fuel was ignited by a cooker which was on at the time, firefighters said.

Ms Hill is being treated at Pinderfields Hospital in Wakefield where her condition was described as "critical but stable" on Thursday.
