Three die in house fire

Three people have died in a house fire in Derbyshire early today, the fire service said.

Emergency services were called to the blaze at a property in North Street in Langley Mill in Derbyshire just after 4am today.

A man, a woman, and a girl died in the fire, which badly damaged the house and a car parked outside, a police spokesman said.

Several neighbouring properties were evacuated as the fire caused a gas leak.

The cause of the blaze is being investigated.
