Three people have been arrested in County Durham in connection with the death of a retired couple in Greater Manchester
A coroner has recorded a verdict of accidental death at the inquest of four members of the same family who died in a crash in County Durham.
Robert Reed, 75, his wife Margaret, 74, their daughter Natalie, 18, and her 14-month-old daughter Destiny all died as a result of the collision in Houghton Le Spring in April 2012.
An inquest will be held into the deaths of four members of a family who were killed in County Durham when a trucker momentarily blacked out following a coughing fit.
Robert Reed, 75, his wife Margaret, 74, their one-year-old great-granddaughter Destiny and her mother Natalie, 18, died in the collision between the Renault Scenic he was driving and a Volvo lorry near Seaham, in April last year.
The lorry driver was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving but following a lengthy investigation, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) announced he would not face any charges.
The CPS said he suffered from a coughing fit which caused him to black out momentarily.
Medical tests showed he had recently had a whooping cough infection and his blood pressure dropped when he coughed.
The inquest will be heard by Durham coroner Andrew Tweddle in Crook.
Police have released the name of a lorry driver who was killed in a crash between two lorries and a car on the A19 on Tuesday morning. Andrew Nimmo, 24, from Murton near Seaham, was due to be married.
A passer-by raised the alarm about a house fire in Seaham in time for three members of a family to escape.
The fire, believed to have been started deliberately, had spread from a wheelie bin to the back door of the house in Windermere Road. Police believe a motorbike propped up next to the bin had been left there on purpose: "literally to add fuel to the fire."
A man passing the house spotted the flames and alerted a 20-year-old man and his two younger sisters, who were inside. They escaped, and the older brother went back into the house and rescued three dogs.
No charges will be brought against a lorry driver whose vehicle collided with a car in County Durham last year - killing four people including a baby - on a road between Seaham and Houghton le Spring.
The driver had been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving but it was later found he had suffered a coughing fit that caused him to lose consciousness.

A lorry driver from Hetton-le-Hole will not be charged over a car crash which killed four members of the same family after he suffered a coughing fit which caused him to lose consciousness, the Crown Prosecution Service said.
The crash between happened on April 25 last year between Seaham and Houghton-le-Spring by Sharpley Golf Club.
Robert Reed, his wife Margaret, 18-year-old Natalie Simpson, who was the partner of their grandson, and her 14-month-old daughter Destiny, suffered fatal injuries.
The lorry driver from Hetton-le-Hole will not face any charges.
The CPS explained medical tests showed he had recently had whooping cough infection, and that his blood pressure dropped when he coughed.
The trucker was arrested after the crash on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
"I would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the families of those involved in this tragic incident, but I would hope that our decision brings some measure of closure to them.
"Immediately following the collision, the driver in this case gave an account that he had experienced a coughing fit which had caused him to suddenly lose consciousness.
"This type of event is known medically as 'cough syncope'.
"Following the collision the driver was taken to Sunderland Royal Infirmary, where he was examined by a doctor.
"A series of tests were conducted that showed that he had recently been subject to a whooping cough infection.
"The tests also showed that the driver's blood pressure dropped to low levels during a coughing fit, which could have caused him to lose consciousness.
"The doctor stated at that time that the results were consistent with a diagnosis of 'cough syncope due to acute whooping cough infection'.
"The CPS engaged the services of two further independent medical professionals, one of whom was an expert in syncope, to scrutinise the initial diagnosis made.
– Paul Lee, Crown advocate for CPS North East
"Both agreed independently that the medical evidence was consistent with this diagnosis.
"Given that no evidence could be found to establish an alternative version of events, the case did not pass the evidential stage of the full code test and a prosecution will not now be brought against the driver of the lorry."
No charges are to be brought against a lorry driver whose vehicle collided with a car between Seaham and Houghton-le-Spring almost a year ago, killing all four members of the same family.
Robert Reed, 75, was driving a people carrier with his wife, Margaret, 74, in the front and Natalie Simpson, 18, and her 14-month-old daughter, Destiny Reed, in the back, when the Renault Scenic was hit by a lorry driving in the opposite direction, killing three of the family instantly.
