A 24-year-old woman and a 28-year-old man arrested on suspicion of manslaughter by gross negligence are continuing to be questioned by police today.

They were arrested yesterday following a house fire in Sycamore Lane, Highfields, Stafford, on 5 February in which four children tragically lost their lives. 

Police also urge people not to speculate as to what may have happened and are grateful for the community’s ongoing support and patience as the investigation continues.
