Two released without charge over fire deaths in Derby

A man and woman arrested after five children were killed in a house fire in Derby have been released without charge.

The man, 38, and woman, 28, from Derby, had been held on suspicion of murder.

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.

Police said they were still treating the fire as suspicious.
