Seven members of the same family are feared dead after a huge fire ripped through their farmhouse and burnt it to the ground while they were asleep.
David Cuthbertson, 68, died in the blaze that ripped through the home in the early hours of this morning - with seven people feared dead in total.

Neighbours Ron, 73, and Rosemary Birchall, 68, said Mr Cuthbertson brought up seven children after his wife suffered a stroke and moved out.
David - known as Dave - is a former builder who was forced to retire after falling off a ladder at work and injuring his back eight years ago.
Mr Birchall said: 'We are close neighbours and Dave would always acknowledge us whether he was in the car or walking.
'My wife always talked to Dave so she is absolutely devastated.
'I knew him as a good father and a gentle fella. My wife would say he was an exceptional father.
'All the other villagers are upset by this because Dave has been in the village for about 15 years.

'He used to be a builder but suffered an accident up a ladder, fell off and injured his back. We think he was electrocuted and it threw him off the ladder.
'His wife had a stroke and was incapacitated for a while. She moved away and couldn't bring up the kids.
'The kids were well presented and they used to pass us everyday. It really is very sad. Rosemary said it's the worst day of her life.'
Mrs Birchall added: 'He was a single father with seven children. They were wonderful.'
It is believed that one of the youngsters raised the alarm after fleeing the blaze.
