Fire-fighters and police were called to the incident in the Spinney Hill area of the city, at about 00:35 BST. The building suffered extensive damage. All four people were already dead when found in upstairs bedrooms.

Police said they were "unable to rule out" the possibility the fire was linked to the murder of a man in Leicester city centre on Thursday.
