Jamie Heaton's parents describe Oldham gas blast

The parents of a toddler, killed when a neighbour deliberately blew up his house, have described the "horrendous" loss of their son.

Two-year-old Jamie Heaton died as he watched TV at his home in Buckley Street, Shaw, Oldham on 26 June.

Andrew Partington, 28, who lived next door, was jailed for 10 years after pleading guilty to manslaughter.

Jamie's parents Michelle and Kenny said they still have vivid memories of the day they lost their "happy little boy".
