Police investigating a house fire, in which two children died, have released CCTV footage of a possible witness they want to trace.

Niamh and Cayden Maynard, aged five and two, died at their home in the Fairfield area of Buxton on 23 April.

Their mother, Fiona Adams, 23, has been charged with two counts of murder, the attempted murder of her eight-month-old son Kiernan and with arson.

Officers say they want to speak to a man seen near the scene.

A police spokesperson said the man, who is thought to live in the area, was not being considered as a suspect but as a witness.

He was carrying what are thought to be two carrier bags as he walked along Edale Way at about 2200 BST on 23 April.
