A 29-year-old man has been held on suspicion of murder a month after a man died in a Hartlepool house fire.

Father-of-three Andrew Simon, 44, was killed in the blaze in Dent Street, in the early hours of 11 June.

It is the third arrest in the murder probe - a 35-year-old man held on suspicion of murder was released without charge.

A 40-year-old local woman arrested on suspicion of arson and manslaughter remains on bail, Cleveland Police said.
