Six arrested after factory fire
Six people have been arrested after a fire at a disused Stoke-on-Trent factory where one body has been found.

Fire crews were called to the old Hamilton Reid building in Black Horse Lane, Hanley, early on Wednesday.

Two more bodies are believed to be inside but police have said it will be a few days before the building is made safe and they can search it.

A number of homeless people are known to have slept at the site. Five men and a woman have been arrested by police.

They include a 24-year-old man, and the others are aged between 19 and 44.
