At 19:49 on Sunday 28 October Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service (HWFRS) was called to a fire at a residential property in Bromyard Road, Cotheridge.

Seven fire engines arrived swiftly and around 30 firefighters and officers immediately began fire and rescue operations.

Sadly, a 21 year old male and an 18 year old female were found inside deceased.

Fire investigation officers have been working with crews and SOCO from West Mercia Police throughout the night to make the property safe and establish the cause. This morning, two fire engines remain at the incident for damping down.

This is a multi-agency incident and the thoughts of the HWFRS are with the families of the deceased.
