Didcot block of flats evacuated after kitchen fire

Eleven people were evacuated after a kitchen fire in a block of flats in an Oxfordshire town.

Crews arrived at the three-storey building in Didcot on Thursday just before 21:00 GMT to find several members of the same family attempting to tackle the fire.

Two people were taken to hospital for smoke inhalation.

The cause of the fire, on the ground floor of the nine-flat property, was determined to be accidental.
