Man charged with four murders after house fire

A man has been charged with four counts of murder over a fatal house fire in Fermanagh on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old, who has not been named by police, is due to appear at Enniskillen Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

He has also been charged with one count of arson with intent to endanger life.

A young child was among the four people killed in the blaze in Derrylin on Tuesday, which destroyed a rural bungalow on the border with the Republic of Ireland.

According to a local priest, the victims were members of the same family and had only recently moved to the area.

They had previously lived in the Republic and were originally from England.

Post-mortem examinations to positively identify the victims are due to take place.
