Man charged with murders of mother and daughters in flat fire

The scene in Clifton

A man has been charged with the murders of a mother and two children who all died after a flat fire in Clifton.

Twenty-eight year old Fatoumatta Hydara and her daughters Fatimah Drammeh, three, and Naeemah Drammeh, one, were taken to hospital after a blaze at their home in Fairisle Close on Sunday, November 20.

All later died from smoke inhalation.

A joint fire and police investigation concluded the fire was started deliberately.

On Thursday (November 24) detectives charged Jamie Barrow, of Fairisle Close, Clifton, with three counts of murder.

The 31-year-old has been remanded into custody and will appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court tomorrow (Friday, November 25).

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.”
