Teesside woman 'critical' with severe burns

A man has been arrested after a woman became engulfed in flames at her Teesside home.

Emergency services were called to South Terrace in South Bank, Middlesbrough, shortly before midnight on Monday after reports from a neighbour.

The 27-year-old remains in a 'critical but stable' condition at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.

A 34-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent and has since been bailed.
