24 July 2013 Last updated at 14:43 BST

A teenager has been found guilty of manslaughter after deliberately starting a fire that killed four siblings in Freckleton, Lancashire.

Four-year-old twins Holly and Ella Smith and brothers, Jordan, two, and Reece, 19, died on 7 January last year.

Dyson Allen, 19, of no fixed address, had denied starting the fire in a bedroom wardrobe in the dormer bungalow, Preston Crown Court heard.

A fire service reconstruction displays how a single naked flame in a wardrobe can rapidly become deadly.
