A woman has been rescued from a first floor bedroom at a house in Somerset after a fire broke out downstairs.
Emergency services were called to the home in Burcott Road, Wells, in the early hours following reports the woman was trapped and unable to get out.

The ground floor of the house was badly damaged by smoke, the spokesman added.
