Cowbridge house fire couple taken to hospital

A couple have been taken to hospital suffering from smoke inhalation after a fire in the kitchen of a house in the Vale of Glamorgan.

Firefighters were sent to the house at St John's Close in Cowbridge at 04:15 GMT.

The pensioners, who had managed to get out of the smoke-logged house themselves, were taken to the Princess of Wales Hospital in Bridgend by paramedics.

Crews used a fan to clear the smoke.
