Cheshunt care home fire: Women aged 91 and 88 named
Two women who died when a blaze ripped through a care home have been named.
Ivy Spriggs, aged 91, and 88-year-old Daphne Holloway died in the fire at Newgrange Care Home in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, on Saturday morning.
Mrs Spriggs met her husband during the Blitz when she was a London bus conductor and was an "unforgettable character", her family said.
Mrs Holloway was devoted to her only daughter and a "devout Christian", her family said.
Thirty-three residents were rescued. Three of those needed hospital treatment for burns and the effects of smoke inhalation.
The cause of the blaze, which broke out in the Cadmore Lane home at about 06:00 BST, is still being investigated.
