Minimum pricing for alcohol must be brought in as a matter of urgency after judges backed the policy, doctors have said.
Fatal Fire An Accident, Police Say
A fire in which one person died appears to have been a tragic accident, police said.
Emergency services were called to the scene in Baird Crescent, Leven, in Fife at around 11am today.
Police said they are working to identify the person found in the house.
They are also working with the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service to establish the cause of the fire.
A police spokesman said: "Enquires are at an early stage but following a joint assessment of the house by the police and Scottish Fire and Rescue Service along with an investigation into the circumstances leading up to the fire being discovered, this would appear to be a tragic accident with no suspicious circumstances.
"We are continuing to make enquiries to identify the person found within the house.
"I would like to thank the local community for their patience whilst we carry out our investigations and appeal to anyone who was in the area this morning that may have information to contact the Police using the 101 non-emergency number.''
