Cops arrest man at Gatwick Airport after mum and son, 4, died in house fire

POLICE at Gatwick Airport have arrested a man in connection with a fatal arson attack that killed a mum and her four-year-old son.

A 29-year-old man from East Sussex was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder as he re-entered the UK from overseas, police said today.

It is the fifth arrest in connection with the deaths of Gina Ingles, 34, and her son Milo Ingles-Bailey.

They died after a blaze in Croxden Way, Eastbourne, on July 10 2018.

Gina's partner Toby Jarrett, 27, was also in the house at the time of the fire, but managed to escape through a first floor window.

The arrested man, from St Leonards, was met by officers at Gatwick airport on January 15.

He was interviewed and was subsequently released on bail until February 13 while inquiries continue.

Detective Inspector Gordon Denslow, of the Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team, said: "This arrest is linked to the arrests made in December and is a significant development in the investigation.

"We continue to pursue those responsible for this, and will do so relentlessly on behalf of Gina and Milo's family, who continue to grieve for the loss of their daughter and grandson.

"I'd like to thank the community for their continued support, and encourage anyone with any information that could assist us to find those responsible for this horrific crime to please come forward.

"Help us achieve justice for a four-year-old boy and his young mother."

In December police arrested a 41-year-old man from Hastings on suspicion of murder and a 28-year-old man from Eastbourne on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.

Both were quizzed by cops and subsequently released under investigation while inquiries continue.

Anyone with any information is urged to report it online or call 101, quoting Operation Druffield.
