Police are investigating the possibility that five more homeless people may have died in a blaze that claimed at least two lives.

A second body was later found inside the Hamilton Reid building in Black Horse Lane, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent.

The bodies cannot be reached until the building is made safe. Six people have been arrested and released on bail.

The five men and a woman were arrested on Wednesday.

They include a 24-year-old man, and the others are aged between 19 and 44.
