Manchester fire: Three-year-old girl becomes fourth child victim of Worsley blaze

Four other people have been arrested in connection with the investigation.

All of the victims of the suspicious fire were children, with the three-year-old girl, believed to be Lia Pearson, the most recent to pass away following the fire.

Little Lia Pearson, who was rescued from the burning terraced house in Walkden in the early hours of Monday morning, died in hospital today.

Police confirmed they had been in contact with the family very recently and had visited the house in the hours before the blaze.

Seven people were believed to be in the property at the time of the blaze, and two 16-year-old boys managed to escape.

"The loss of a child in any circumstance is unthinkable, to lose three in such deplorable circumstances words can not describe", said Miller.

Ch Supt Wayne Miller said Greater Manchester police were treating the incident as a targeted attack after recovering CCTV from the area.

Formal identification of the children has yet to take place, but GMP have named all the victims.
