Brighton father thanks fire hero for saving children's lives

A man who rescued a mother and her two young children from a fire in the middle of the night has been hailed a hero by their father.

Michael Foster said the actions of Wade Eason, their neighbour in Brighton, saved the family's lives when he climbed a ladder and rescued the children from a bedroom window.

Mr Eason said he was woken by Mr Foster calling for help.

South East Today's Nicola Haseler also spoke to the children's aunt Caroline Darby.
