Four charged over fatal flat fire
Three builders and an unemployed man have been charged with murder after a fire in west London killed a woman.

Ellis Adiwal, 55, was rescued from the first floor of a flat at Nestles Avenue, Hayes, on Tuesday night but died later at Hillingdon Hospital.

Jaswinder Dosanj and Amandeep Chiandi, both 24, Sukhjiwan Khangura, 22, and Hardeep Multani, 28, are charged with murder, grievous bodily harm and arson.

They are due to appear before Uxbridge Magistrates Court on Monday.

Mr Khangura is from Greenford, west London, while the other three men are from Hayes.

A man in his 60s, who was also in the flat when the fire started, broke his back when he jumped from a window to escape.

He is said to be in a stable condition in hospital, but is suffering from smoke inhalation and burns to his hands.
