Two brothers are surprised by a special visitor in Santa's grotto

Christmas might be a month away, but two little boys have already got the best present of all. Declan and Connor Gibson hadn't seen their dad, who's been serving with the RAF in the Falklands, for four months. But this weekend he flew home to surprise them when they least expected him.

Police investigating the murder of man who died after an industrial firework was ignited in his home in Birmingham have arrested two more people.

56-year-old Anthony Nicholls died in hospital after the firework – understood to have been lit by a group of men – sparked a huge blaze at his home in Tile Cross on 2 November.

An 18-year-old woman was arrested from an address in Ward End yesterday (19 November) following a 9am police raid, while officers moved in to detain a 21-year-old Sheldon man at Birmingham Airport at 4.15pm shortly after he arrived on a flight.

They were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder and have both since been bailed until next month.

A total of 4 murder suspects have now been arrested and released on bail.
