Harlow fire deaths: Three-year-old 'still critical'

A three-year-old girl remains in a critical condition and her father "very poorly" after an Essex house fire that killed four children and their mother.

Sabah Usmani, a doctor, and her sons Sohaib, 11, and Rayyan, six, and daughter Hira, 13, died at their end-of-terrace home in Harlow on Monday.

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

Essex Police said the fire was being treated as suspicious.

Mike Sergeant reports.
