Man arrested over jockeys' blaze deaths
A 39-year-old man was arrested today in connection with the deaths of two young jockeys in a flat fire.
The local man was detained by officers investigating the blaze at a flat complex in Norton, near Malton, in September, North Yorkshire Police said.
The blaze claimed the life of promising apprentices Jamie Kyne, 18, from County Galway, Ireland, and Jan Wilson, 19, from Forfar, Scotland.
Two other young jockeys were injured as they escaped the fire in a three-storey block just off Norton's main street.
A police spokesman said he could not confirm the arrested man was the same person who was detained shortly after the incident in September and later released.
The deaths of the two young riders shocked the racing world and a series of tributes were held at racecourses and yards across Britain and Ireland.
The arrested man is being held at a police station in North Yorkshire.
