A sleeping 19-year-old man had a lucky escape on Tuesday after his duvet caught fire in his Gladstone Street flat.

He was awoken by his smoke alarm and the alarm was raised 4.55pm.

Scarborough fire crews administered first aid at the scene after he suffered burns to his feet.

He was taken to hospital by ambulance and firefighters used a large fan to clear fumes.
