The stepfather of a girl who died in a fire at a farm in West Yorkshire has been released on bail after being questioned on suspicion of her murder.

Two-year-old Isobel Dobson died in a van which caught fire at Hessle Farm, in Wragby, near Wakefield, on Friday.

Her one-year-old half-siser, who was also in the van, was rescued from the vehicle and treated for burns.

Isobel's 37-year-old stepfather had also been questioned on suspicion of attempted murder.

The fire at the farm is being treated as suspicious.

A joint investigation by West Yorkshire Police and West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service is continuing.

The family had been at the farm tending to a horse before the fire started in a barn being used to store hay.
