A mother and four children killed in a suspicious Essex house fire were part of a "wonderful family", friends have said.

Sabah Usmani, who was a doctor, and her sons Sohaib, 11, and Rayyan, six, and daughter Hira, 13, died at their end-of-terrace home in Harlow at 01:45 BST.

A third son, Muneeb, nine, and daughter Maheen, three, were rescued and taken to hospital, where Muneeb later died.
