A BODY has been recovered from a house in Blackburn following a blaze this morning.

The body, believed to be that of the elderly man who lived at the property, was found this morning as crime scene investigators searched the charred and smouldering remains.

Firefighters from Blackburn and Darwen were called to the detached bungalow on Pleckgate Road, at around 3.45am after a 999 call was received from a passer-by.

The inferno has wrecked the house and police and fire officers are carrying out investigations into the cause of the fire.

So so sad, I used to deliver papers to his house and stopped a few months a go. Such a nice man.
