Salford house fire: Officer's 'heart breaks' for family

"Words cannot describe" how a family which has lost three children in a house fire are feeling, a senior police officer has said.

Ch Supt Wayne Miller told a press conference his "heart breaks" for the relatives of Demi Pearson, 14, Brandon, eight, and Lacie, seven, who died in a blaze in Walkden on Monday.

The children's mother Michelle, 35, and three-year-old sister Lia remain in hospital.
