AN electrical fault is believed to have sparked a blaze which caused the roof of a house in Walkeringham to collapse.

The blaze ripped through the loft and also spread to the first floor of the property at The Haven, Megson Way, at about 1pm on Tuesday afternoon.

A spokesperson for Humberside Fire and Rescue said the fire alarm sounded and no occupants were hurt.

Four fire engines from stations in Beverley and Hull spent an hour tackling the blaze.
