A second woman has died days after a house fire in north London.

It took about 25 firefighters more than an hour to control the blaze in an end-of-terrace house in St Loys Road, Tottenham, which is on the same road as Tottenham fire station.

A woman aged 75 died shortly after midday on Friday while a 35-year-old woman died in hospital on Monday, the Met Police said.

The fire is not being treated as suspicious.

London Fire Brigade said the two women were rescued from the first floor and taken to hospital.

A man who was also in the house at the time left the property himself, the Met added.

The cause of the fire, which damaged half of the first floor, is not yet known.
