Police investigating the deaths of four Lancashire siblings in a fire have issued a fresh appeal for information.

Reece Smith, 19, four-year-old twins Holly and Ella and two-year-old Jordan died in the fire at the house in Lytham Road, Freckleton, on 7 January.

Det Supt Dermott Horrigan said police would leave "no stone unturned" to find out what happened.

An 18-year-old man arrested in connection with the incident remains on police bail.

A police spokeswoman said that since the fire, officers had spoken to "hundreds of members of the community and launched a social media campaign with appeals on Facebook and YouTube".

Mr Horrigan said: "Even the smallest piece of information could prove crucial.

"This remains very much an ongoing investigation and we will leave no stone unturned until we get to the bottom of exactly what has happened."

The fire was started by a naked flame inside the wardrobe which was in the children's bedroom.
