Block evacuated after Hertfordshire village flat fire

A three-storey block of flats in Hertfordshire was evacuated after a fire broke out on the top floor in the early hours of the morning.

More than 40 firefighters were called to Puckeridge between Bishop's Stortford and Stevenage.

Crews from across the county went to Vintage Court in Cambridge Road just after 0300 BST.

The road has now reopened, residents have returned and no injuries were reported, the fire service said.
