Probe into fatal flats fire

Five of the six people who died in a fire at a tower block in south-east London are named, as police investigate the cause.

Helen Udoaka, 34, and her three-week-old daughter Michelle died following the fire which broke out at the 12-storey Lakanal Estate in Camberwell.

The other three named are Dayana Francisquini, 26, Filipe Francisquini, 3, and Catherine Hickman, 31.

The sixth person remains unidentified, but is believed to be a four-year-old girl.

Police are treating Friday's fire as suspicious until a cause is determined.

Rachel Harvey reports.
