Knottingley Man Jailed Over Fatal House Fire

Daniel Jones will spend twenty years in jail following the fire which killed Andrew Broadhead and his daughter Kiera.

There's praise for people in Stanley who helped jailing a man for the manslaughter of a dad and his daughter.

His motive was to destroy CCTV which he thought might contain evidence of a burglary he had earlier committed at a nearby property.

42 year old Andrew Broadhead and eight year old Kiera were unable to escape from a fire at their home last October.

Andy's parents Alan and Jean Broadhead said what has taken place will live with us every day and no prison sentence will ever make up for what has been done to us.

Part of our hearts are gone forever"
