A family of 17 have escaped from a house fire in Oxfordshire.

Crews were called to the home in Manor Crescent, Didcot, late on Tuesday after a neighbour saw the fire in a first-floor bedroom and raised the alarm.

When firefighters arrived several members of the family were attempting to tackle the fire.

Nobody was hurt although three people were checked over by ambulance crews. The cause of the blaze was accidental, the fire service said.
