The mother of four brothers whose lives were lost in a blaze that started when they were left alone in their London home says she will "never get over" their deaths.

Deveca Rose has spoken after the tragedy of losing her two sets of twin sons after a fire at their Sutton home on Thursday.

Kyson and Bryson, four, and Leyton and Logan, three, all died after a blaze took over the ground floor of their home with smoke overwhelming the boys.

Speaking to The Times, Rose said the four boys were her "world", her "heart" and "soul".

She said: "I can't get over it, I'll never get over it.

"They lit up everybody's world and I will always be sorry that they went so soon. They had so much planned and now they're gone.

"I wake up and I look at their Christmas tree and I look at their clothes, their Liverpool [football] kit, their Cocomelon dressing gowns, their drawings."

Metropolitan Police confirmed they had arrested a 27-year-old woman on suspicion of child neglect, who has since been bailed until mid-January.

The fire saw more than 60 firefighters and eight engines tackle the blaze, which was "very well-developed" when they arrived.

It took more than 90 minutes for firefighters to gain control of the fire, as they tried to save the lives of the four brothers.

They were given immediate CPR by firefighters at the scene but sadly passed away in hospital.

Heartbroken Dalton Hoath, 28, father of the boys, described his son’s as bright in a statement.

He said: "We would like to thank all the emergency services who did so much to try and save our boys, and also the local community who have come together at this difficult time.

"I would ask that my family are given time to grieve in private.

"They will be forever in my heart and thoughts, love Dad."

Tributes have since been left for the boys outside their home on Collingwood Road as police continue to investigate.

Chief Superintendent Dave Stringer, policing commander for Sutton, Croydon and Bromley, said: "Local detectives continue to investigate and will be working with colleagues from the London Fire Brigade to determine what caused the fire and to investigate any other relevant matters.

"We will continue to work with the local authority and the wider community to support local residents as they come to terms with this tragic loss."
