Father's appeal a year on from 'catastrophic' house fire

A year on from a house fire that killed six members of the same family, the surviving father has issued a fresh appeal for information.

The blaze tore through the family home in Harlow, Essex in the early hours of 15th October 2012, and although the deaths are being treated as murders, the cause of the fire remains a mystery.

Dr Abdul Shakoor spoke to Daybreak about his fond memories of his youngest daughter and his gratitude to the local community:
