Officers investigating the murder of two men found in a King’s Cross flat fire on Friday have made two more arrests.
A 37-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder while a 44-year-old woman was also being held today on suspicion of obstructing police.
The arrests come after a 42-year-old woman was also arrested on suspicion of murder on Sunday.
Police launched a murder investigation on Friday after firefighters found the bodies of a man in his 40s and another in his 50s when they were called to a blaze at a third floor flat in Stelfox House, Penton Rise at 7.05pm.
Officers are in the process of informing next of kin who will then formally identify the two men.
