Three more fire service staff are to be questioned over a blaze in Warwickshire in which four men lost their lives, the Fire Brigades Union has confirmed.

Firefighters Ian Reid, Darren Yates-Badley, Ashley Stephens and John Averis died tackling the blaze at a packing plant at Atherstone-on-Stour in 2007.

Three fire service staff have already been questioned on suspicion of gross negligence manslaughter.

All four firemen who were killed in November 2007 were from Warwickshire.
