Barn Mead 2

IT is now five years since six members of the same family lost their lives in a house fire in Barn Mead, Harlow.

Dr Sabah Usmani and her children Hira, 12, Sohaib, 11, Muneeb, nine, Rayyan, 6 and three-year-old Maheen died as a result of the fire which swept through the ground floor of their terraced home in Barn Mead, Harlow, in the early hours of Monday, October 15, 2012.

It sent thick, choking smoke through the premises. Dr Abdul Shakoor had to leap through an upstairs window in a desperate attempt to get help for his family. He was unable to save them from the fire that engulfed his home. He was the only survivor.

Anybody with any information is asked to contact the Serious Crime Directorate at Brentwood on Essex Police 101.

People can also contact independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
