A centuries-old village church has been ravaged by a huge fire.
Pictures of the blaze at All Saints‘ Church in Mackworth, Derbyshire, show significant damage to the roof of the Grade I listed building.
Church warden Prof Bryan Jones said he felt „absolutely numb… watching 1,000 years of history go up in flames“.
Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service said the cause of the blaze was unclear but the possibility of an arson attack was being investigated.
Clive Stanbrook, from the service, said the roof had collapsed and there was „extensive“ damage to the interior.
