A photographer has been left "heartbroken" following a fire at her North Lincolnshire studio.

Hannah Dobson's workspace at Brigg Garden Centre suffered serious damage in a fire on Saturday 29 June.

Ms Dobson said the incident had hit her "livelihood hard" and left her without a studio.

She had been based there for almost two years.

The 31 year old has been a photographer for six years.

She specialises in baby and family pictures but also does wedding photography.

She found out about the blaze from the manager of the garden centre where her studio is based.

Ms Dobson said: "Working with young kids I have a lot of equipment in there, which just isn't useable now, and the space itself can't be used.

"I've only got a couple of weddings, so it's a tricky situation for income right now.

"I'm heartbroken because it's not just about income for me, I love my job. I don't have a huge amount of reserves and I've lost all my stuff.

"It's my main source of income."

Ms Dobson thinks she won't be back up and running again in her studio until at least September.
