Wirral 'intense' house fire death couple named

  • 12-3-2015

An elderly couple who died after a fire at a house in Merseyside have been named.

The body of Robert Watson, 85, was found inside the property in James Street, Wirral and Enid Watson, 84, was rescued but died in hospital.

Two police officers tried to save them after they spotted the blaze at about 20:30 GMT on Friday, but were driven back by the "intense" heat and smoke.

The officers were not injured. The fire is not being treated as suspicious.

A post-mortem examination is due to take place and a file is being prepared for the coroner.
