Emma said: "We lost everything. Nothing could be saved - we're still in the clothes we left in, so have nothing left."

She added: "We're so overwhelmed and grateful for all the kind words and gestures and donations and support we've been given.

"It's been really humbling to see the community of Redditch come together in this way and try and help us build everything we have lost from this tragic fire."
