Edinburgh police seek clues in 'suspicious' child deaths

Police in Edinburgh are continuing the forensic examination of a flat in which three children were discovered dead.

Eight-year-old twins Luca and Austin Riggi and their sister Cecilia, five, were found after a reported gas explosion and fire at the Slateford Road property.

Police are treating the deaths as suspicious and plan to speak to the children's mother, Theresa Riggi, who is in hospital after apparently falling from the townhouse-style building.
