Harlow fire: Father's new plea for public's help

The father of five children killed with their mother after a fire at their Essex home has renewed his appeal for the public's help.

It has now emerged that the house in Harlow had been broken into on the night of the fire.

Dr Sabah Usmani, her sons Muneeb, nine, and Rayyan, six, and daughter Hira, 13, died at the scene of the blaze on 15 October. A third son, Sohaib, 11, and daughter Maheen, three, died later in hospital.

Dr Abdul Shakoor, who made the appeal at a press conference in Chelmsford, was the only the survivor of the fire.
