A "fierce fire" at a care home has left two people dead - with a further 33 having to be rescued from the collapsing building.
The blaze gutted Newgrange Care Home in Cadmore Lane, Cheshunt, after it broke out at about 05:50 BST. Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue service said 12 fire engines were sent to the care home and that an "excellent effort" had been made by everyone involved in the rescue.
Despite firefighters launching a "challenging" rescue operation, they were unable to save everyone inside. Three needed hospital treatment for minor burns and smoke inhalation, the fire service said.
