A babysitter arrested on suspicion of child neglect after three young sisters fled their burning home in just their pyjamas has been bailed again by a magistrates’ court.

The girls – thought to be aged 11, eight and six – banged on their next door neighbour’s door after escaping the blazing property on Mayfield Avenue, Thornton which happened on October 12.

It is believed they had been left with a babysitter while their mother was at work on the Saturday night.

A 22-year-old Fleetwood man, who was arrested on suspicion of child neglect, was bailed to December 10.

He has now been rebailed to February 16.
