'Pray for Harry' says grandfather

The step-grandfather of a three-year-old boy critically injured in a house fire has thanked the neighbours who helped rescue the family.

Paul Tree said Harry had undergone a five-hour operation for burns at Frenchay Hospital.

He said all he could do was "pray for the young lad".

The family was woken early on Saturday and discovered the fire in the front room of the property in Lodge Hill in the Cossham area of Bristol.

Neighbours helped get nine people, including four children and a baby out.
