Children rescued from Sheffield house leave hospital

The 13-year-old and 14-year-old were among six children rushed to hospital following a "major incident" at a house in the Shiregreen area on Friday. 

South Yorkshire Police previously said a 37-year-old man and a 34-year-old woman had been arrested on suspicion of murder.

Over the weekend the Crown Prosecution Service authorised the bringing of criminal charges against two people and police said: Two people arrested on Friday 24 May from a house in Shiregreen have now been charged and will appear at Sheffield magistrates court on Monday 27 May.

On Sunday, the force said: "Two people arrested on Friday May 24 from a house in Shiregreen have now been charged and will appear at Sheffield Magistrates Court on Monday May 27."

The four other children who were "rescued" from the house have now been released from hospital.

Detectives have given no indication about how they came to harm, but have confirmed it was not a shooting. 

On Friday Det Ch Insp Simon Palmer said: A 37-year-old man and a 34-year-old woman have been arrested on suspicion of murder and remain in custody at this time.

People living nearby saw more than a dozen police cars and four ambulances arrive on the tree-lined road, and an air ambulance landed in the grounds of a nearby school. 

Police have said the incident was not a shooting and that their inquiries continue, though they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.

The teens, aged 13 and 14, died in hospital on Friday after police were called to a “serious incident” at a semi-detached house

A man and a woman were arrested on suspicion of murder after two teenage boys died and four other children were taken to hospital for treatment.
