Prestatyn fire deaths: Mother welcomes guilty verdict

A woman has been found guilty of murdering five members of a neighbouring family, including three children, by starting a fire.

Lee-Anna Shiers, 20, her nephew Bailey, four, niece Skye, two, partner Liam Timbrell, 23, and son Charlie, 15 months, died in the blaze in Prestatyn.

Melanie Smith, 43, was convicted of starting the fire last October in a row over a pushchair left in a shared hallway.

Speaking after the guilty verdict was announced, Ms Shiers' mother Joy said: "We've got justice for our angels".
