A man suspected of eight counts of murder following a fatal house fire in Huddersfield is due in court later - after his extradition from Pakistan.

Shahid Mohammed, 36, was flown back on Wednesday and is expected to be formally charged with the murders of five children and three adults at Leeds Magistrates' Court.

The blaze in Birkby, in 2002, killed eight members of the Chishti family - at their home.
