A Sheffield woman's been left with nothing but the clothes she was wearing after her house burned down, killing her son.

Richard Hobson died as flames tore through the semi he shared with his elderly mum and sister on Poplar Avenue, Beighton on Tuesday..

Now, his niece, Louise Edwards is appealing for help for her Auntie and Grandma who is very frail and in her 80s.

She has lived in the house for around 60 years.

She's told Capital they need a new home, clothes and all the basic things you need to live.
