KinderKare nursery in Worcester closed after fire

A Worcester children's nursery has been closed until further notice after its building was severely damaged in a blaze, the fire service said.

About 50 firefighters were called to the KinderKare site off London Road on Sunday evening.

A woman was rescued from a balcony at the two-storey building, treated for smoke inhalation and taken to hospital.

No-one else was inside at the time of the fire, which affected the first floor and roof space.

The fire service, which was called at about 18:30 BST on Sunday, said the premises would not be open for some days.

Children are being accommodated at other KinderKare nurseries.
