Five people have escaped from a house fire, which police believe was started deliberately, by jumping from a first floor window.

Firefighters were called to the blaze on Mallard Close, Blackbird Leys, Oxford, at 02:45 GMT.

A 33-year-old man sustained a broken leg in the jump. All five people were taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital for treatment.
