Man, 31, charged with murders of mother and two children

A man has been charged with the murders of a mother and her two children following a flat fire in Clifton, Nottingham.

Jamie Barrow, 31, has been charged with the murders of Fatoumatta Hydara, 28, and her daughters Fatimah Drammeh, three, and Naeemah Drammeh, one, Nottinghamshire Police said.

It comes after a joint investigation by fire and police services concluded the blaze on Sunday was started deliberately.

Ms Hydara was taken to Queen’s Medical Centre for treatment but died on Tuesday morning. Her daughters were rushed to the same hospital but were pronounced dead soon after their arrival.

Barrow has been remanded in custody and will appear at Nottingham Magistrates Court on Friday.

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.”
