Fatal Fire: House on Lytham Road in Freckleton

A tearful teenager has appeared in court charged with the murder of four siblings in a house fire in Lancashire.

Dyson Allen, 19, struggled to hold back tears as he stood in the dock accused of the murders in the fire which engulfed a bungalow in Freckleton last January.

Allen, wearing a white shirt hanging outside his trousers and a grey hoodie, is alleged to have killed Reece Smith, 19, four-year-old twins Holly and Ella Smith, and two-year-old Jordan Smith on January 7.
