Texas blast: Sister's tribute to 'hero' fire fighter Morris Bridges

The number of people killed in an explosion at a US fertiliser plant has risen from 12 to 14, after officials recovered two more bodies.

A fire sparked the blast at the factory in the town of West, near Waco, and a number of volunteer firefighters were killed as they tried to put out the blaze.

One of them was Morris Bridges, 41, a father of three children, who was proud to earn his badge with the West Volunteer Fire Department.

Alastair Leithead spoke to his sister Louise Mills, who paid tribute to her brother, saying he always put himself second.
