Leicester fire deaths: Father makes statement after verdict

A man whose wife and three children died in a fire at their home takes part in a news briefing with Leicestershire Police, after seven men and a teenager are found guilty for their part in the arson attack.

Shehnila Taufiq, 47, daughter Zainab, 19, and sons Bilal, 17, and Jamal, 15 died in a house fire in Leicester in the early hours of 13 September.

The father of the family, Dr Muhammad Taufiq Al Sattar, was working at a hospital in Dublin at the time.

During the trial at Nottingham Crown Court, the jury heard the blaze had been part of a "botched revenge attack".
