Teen charged after house fire kills four siblings

A teenager has been charged with the murder of four siblings who died in a house fire, police said tonight.

19-year-old Dyson Allen will appear before magistrates in Blackpool tomorrow, accused of murdering 19-year-old Reece Smith, four-year-old twins Holly and Ella Smith, and 2-year-old Jordan Smith.

All four died after a blaze in a converted bungalow in Freckleton, between Preston and Blackpool last January.
