A mum has spoken out about the devastating affect a house fire has had on her family.
A loft fire caused extensive damage to their home and the Lewes family-of-four had to vacate the property for eight months.
Anna Stevens was putting her two young children to bed when she was met by a plume of smoke from the loft, which resulted in her fleeing immediately, accompanied by her young kids.
As part of our Be Your Own Hero campaign we are urging residents to carry out essential safety checks to help prevent fires in the home.
Anna wants to remind others about the importance of making sure that you have a working smoke alarm, along with home contents insurance.
