Fourteen disabled people were killed, and eight more badly burnt in a fire and explosion around 2.00pm on November 26 that devastated a charity workshop in the Black Forest area of South West Germany.

The workshop was run by the Catholic charity Caritas and the tragedy was thought to have been caused by a faulty gas heater. More than 100 people were working in the workshop making Christmas toys and other items.

An investigation is currently being carried out.
