A BURNLEY family woke to find their kitchen ceiling had collapsed.

Firefighters said faulty plumbing was to blame for the incident which happened at 7am today.

Watch manager Steve Harrison said six people in the house, in Bar Street, were woken by a loud bang.

Crews attended and made sure the building was structurally sound.

“It could have hurt them if they were stood under it but there is no structural damage,” he said.
