Three men have been arrested on suspicion of murder after a mother, her baby daughter and a family friend died in a house fire in Derbyshire.
Amy Smith, 17, her six-month-old daughter Ruby-Grace Gaunt, and friend Edward Green, also 17, all died in the blaze at a flat in Langley Mil.
Derbyshire Police said three men - a 17-year-old from Long Eaton along with a 21-year-old and a 43-year-old from Sandiacre, are being questioned in custody after being arrested late last night on suspicion of murder.
Assistant Chief Constable Martyn Bates said: “The cause of the fire is still unknown and the possibility that it was started deliberately is just one of many lines of inquiry we are pursuing at this time.
“These arrests do not mark the end of the investigation, far from it. I would still urge anyone with information to come forward and speak to us.”
