Wizard of Oz leads to house blaze in Carterton

A woman who escaped from a house fire in Oxfordshire with five children has said it was started by them recreating the Wizard of Oz.

Kerry Wheeler had been cleaning out her spare room in Briary Way, Carterton, when the children found a broomstick as part of a Halloween costume.

While her back was turned they used an old lighter to burn the broomstick sparking the blaze.
