Prayers for children killed by fire at home in Derby

A church service has been held in memory of five children killed in a fire at their home in Derby.

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

A local resident has set up a charity to help raise funds for the family.

Police are continuing to question a man and a woman arrested on suspicion of murder.

The woman, 28, and man, 38, from Derby, were arrested separately on Friday.
