THE 32-year-old woman who died in a fire in Thorley Court, Abbey Meads, has been formally identified as Sharron McQuarrie.

A post-mortem examination was conducted by a Home Office pathologist at Flax Bourton, near Bristol, yesterday.

But the cause of death will not be known until a number of toxicology tests have been completed.

A 25-year-old man, believed to be Sam Vaughan, was severely burned in the fire.

He was taken to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol suffering from burns and the effects of smoke inhalation and has regained consciousness today.
