On Thursday, cops charged Jamie Barrow, also of Fairisle Close, with three counts of murder.

Assistant Chief Constable Rob Griffin, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Our thoughts remain with the family at this incredibly painful time, as well as the communities that have been affected by this most tragic of incidents.

“The grief this family has been put through is incomprehensible.
“Large teams of detectives have been working relentlessly alongside specialist search units and forensic experts to understand the full circumstances behind this deliberate fire.
“Following those inquiries, we have charged a suspect with three counts of murder.
“The family are aware of this development and I would like to sincerely thank them for their patience and understanding as we do everything we possibly can to gain justice for Fatoumatta, Fatimah, and Naeemah.”

Firefighters and paramedics were called to the scene around four miles south of Nottingham city centre at 3.17am on Sunday, November 20.
The mum and tots were rushed to hospital, but tragically Fatimah and Naeemah died shortly afterward.
Fatoumatta was placed on a life support machine but passed away on Tuesday morning.
Cops arrested a 31-year-old man on Sunday night.
Detective Chief Inspector Mark Sinski said on Tuesday: “We are dealing with one of the most horrendous crimes – the death of two young children and their mother.
“This is a deeply upsetting tragedy and I can only imagine the family’s pain. They include the woman’s husband and the father of the two children, who was not in the UK at the time of the fire.
“This has been an extremely traumatic event for them, and I’d like to reassure them we’re doing everything we possibly can to bring them the justice they deserve.

He added: “This is now being treated as a triple homicide.
“The local community has been shocked and deeply saddened by the events of the past two days and I want to thank those living in the area for their patience and understanding while we gather evidence at the scene.
“I also want to thank those who have already come forward, but I would urge anyone with any information, regardless of how insignificant you think it may be, to contact us.
“We would specifically like to speak to anyone who was in or around Fairisle Close between 12am and 4.30am on Sunday morning.”
Horrified neighbours previously told how the flames tore through the flat in the early hours of the morning.
One told The Sun: “The whole flat was engulfed in fire and thick black smoke and many of the neighbours had to be evacuated and are still not allowed back home.”
Local dad Rob added: “There were emergency services everywhere and firefighters had gotten into the flat and managed to rescue the two little kids, one’s just a baby.
“They were lucky to be alive, and I prayed for them, but later heard they had passed away and I wept for them.

“It’ s such a harrowing thing to see and made worse because the fire was started deliberately. It is awful, just unimaginable. It is absolutely heartbreaking.”
Anyone with information that could assist the investigation is asked to submit to the force’s Public Portal, or call police on 101 quoting incident 0110_20112022.
