A woman and a child were rescued from a block of flats in Edinburgh after a blaze broke out in a hallway.

Fire crews were called to the four-storey block of terraced flats in Buckingham Terrace, in the west of the city, shortly after 22:00 on Tuesday.

Neighbours on the ground floor managed to escape but the woman and child had to be taken to safety from their second-level property.

They were taken to hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation.
