A joint fire and police investigation concluded the fire at the flat in Fairisle Close, Clifton, was started deliberately and a triple murder investigation has been launched.

Ms Hydara had been on life support after the blaze in the early hours of Sunday.

A 31-year-old man from Clifton who was arrested on Sunday night remains in custody and police have been awarded an additional 36 hours to interview him.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Sinski, who is leading the investigation, said specialists would continue to examine the scene for some time and asked for privacy for the family.
