The funeral of a mother and her teenage daughter who died in a house fire is being held next week.

A joint service for Sally-Ann Baxter-Smith, 38, and her daughter Lois, 14, will be held at Eastbourne Crematorium next Tuesday at 1pm.

Lois's 12-year-old sister and a boy of nine who was staying the night jumped to safety from an upstairs window in Beach Road, Eastbourne, escaping with minor injuries.

But Mrs Baxter-Smith and Lois died of smoke inhalation in hospital after being dragged unconscious from the house by firefighters in the early hours of September 6.

A man aged 35 was arrested later that day on suspicion of murder but released without charge after detectives were given an extra 36 hours to quiz him.
