The body of a woman has been found following a house fire.

The victim's next of kin is being supported by a family liaison officer, after the blaze broke out on Monday night, in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire.

Dyfed-Powys Police officers found the body at a property in Siskin Close after fire crews were called, at about 22:45 BST.

A joint investigation into the cause is being carried out with the fire service, the force said.

The coroner has been informed about the victim's death.

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service said the fire had broken out on the ground floor before it spread through the whole of the two-floor house.

It took fire crews more than three hours to put out the blaze, it added.

The service said no-one else was reported at the property and its crews assisted in the evacuation of the adjoining terraced properties.

Due to the significant damage to the property, its urban search and rescue team will visit the scene on Tuesday to help with scene preservation.
