A person has been found dead following a house fire in Surrey. 

The fatal blaze broke out in Holywell Way, Stanwell just before midday today (April 14). 

Flames caused substantial damage to the house, as well as some neighbouring properties, Surrey Police say.  

When Surrey Fire and Rescue officers were able to access the upper floor of the house a body was found.

The next of kin have been informed.

The cause of the fire is unexplained but officers will remain on scene until at least tomorrow.

It is hoped the building can be made safe enough for further investigation to take place.

In a statement, Surrey Police said:

"We are aware that individuals locally were filming the fire and the actions of the emergency services. We would ask that the public consider the feeling of those who knew the deceased before sharing footage on social media.

We would also ask anyone who has footage taken before the emergency services arrived to contact Surrey "Police on 101 (or www.surrey.police.uk/tellusmore), quoting reference PR/45190038807, as your footage could help with our investigation into the cause of the fire."
