Firefighters spent more than three hours tackling a blaze that ripped through the roof of a house in East Sussex.

Three crews were called to the fire at a semi-detached property in Oak Tree Court, Uckfield, late on Christmas Eve.

No-one was injured in the blaze, which East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service said destroyed 75% of the roof.

Firefighters were still damping down the site earlier, according to a spokeswoman.
