A woman charged over a huge sheltered housing fire in St Austell is due in court.

The 43 year old is accused of arson with intent to endanger life.

It is after flames ripped through Sylvan Court on Monday evening, forcing the whole building to be evacuated.

Some residents were treated for breathing in smoke but no-one was seriously hurt.
