John Blow Primary School in Collingham has paid tribute to two pupils who died in a tragic fire in Nottinghamshire.

Emergency services were called at around 7am on Saturday to reports of a blaze at the home, which is to the north of Newark in Nottinghamshire.

A house fire claimed the lives of a five-year-old boy, his eight-year-old sister and 33-year-old mother.

Justine Collison has been named by police as the mother, with her two children being named as Isabella, who died in the blaze and Harvey, who died in hospital.

It is understood the 34-year-old man who remains in a serious condition in hospital is Mrs Collison's husband Gavin.

The school published a letter which was sent to parents at the school.

Dear parents,
