Harlow tragic fire anniversary

Today is the first anniversary of a house fire in Essex which killed six members of the same family.

A year on and police are still hunting for clues. The fire at Barn Mead in Harlow last October killed Sabah Usmani and her five children.

We will never forget that night and our thoughts continue to be with Dr Shakoor, his family, his friends and colleagues. We will also never forget how the whole Harlow community and the emergency services rallied round to support Dr Shakoor and each other. This will be an extremely difficult week for Dr Shakoor and the Harlow community continues to offer support and pay its respects.

– Cllr Mark Wilkinson, Leader of Harlow Council.
