Derby children fire deaths: Man and woman still questioned

Police are continuing to question a man and a woman arrested on suspicion of murdering five children in a fire.

The children, four boys and a girl, aged between five and 10, died in the fire in Derby early on Friday, despite their father's attempts to save them.

Their 13-year-old brother, who was also in the house in Victory Road, Allenton, is in a critical condition in a hospital in Birmingham.
