Former Scots child star Lena Zavaroni was forced to flee a blaze which destroyed her home. Lena, 34, told yesterday how she escaped from the flat in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire, after her duvet was accidentally set alight by a candle.

The flat was gutted by Thursday’s blaze and Lena has now moved in with her dad Victor who lives nearby.
