    A woman and three children have died after a house fire in Bolton.

    The blaze broke out at Rosamond Street in the Daubhill area of the town just after 09:00 BST.

    A man managed to escape the terraced house but two boys and a girl, all under the age of 13, and a woman were still inside.

    One of the children was pronounced dead at the scene and the woman and two other children died later in hospital, Greater Manchester Police said.

    The force said it was currently not treating the fire as suspicious.

    One resident said: “It’s terrible, absolutely terrible. I saw them bringing people out. They were doing chest compressions.

    “I saw them bring two out and then they put a green sheet up. I went to the window and saw smoke billowing.”
