    Possibly a school inset day before the start of the half term?

    It is just a normal bog standard working class area to be honest.

    Some areas better than others I have a friend that lives a few streets away and it's just a normal Sheffield neighbourhood.

    Yeh I'd say a single family home.

    If this took place in America (as it does, as it does) no one would bat an eye. Sad.

    Just tragic, without even knowing the details, you just know this is going to be a heartbreaker.

    poisoning mentioned in that interview...neither confirmed or denied. so odd.

    sounds like the 2 boys died in hospital as he said they have since died.

    My first thought was carbon monoxide poisoning but then read about the arrests.

    I suppose it is possible it's something like that but until toxicology comes back they have arrested the adults (think they did this in another carbon monoxide case also but I'm not certain)

    Sounds to me like "someone" in that home called for help. The two oldest children are dead. The others seem to be too young? So, who called? An adult? If that's the case, then it is likely something along the lines of carbon monoxide poisoning. The other children are in good condition, I believe. Is it possible the two older children who are deceased were playing with/handling something deadly and died as a result? NO GUNS involved.

    But a witness said they saw children carried out with bandages? So I am not sure it was gas or poisoning. If the witness was correct anyway.

    if we had audio and a video then the perpetrator would be caught within days not years...

    according to report by sun news agency, one of the boys texted his friend early this morning saying "we're not coming in today because we are feeling sick"

    The 11 or 10 year old could have called? That's not too young IMO.

    What an extremely sad situation. :(

    So they may have been feeling sick...OR maybe the parents/adults told them to call in sick.

    Maybe they told them 'we are all staying home today for a special surprise...'

    I have seen that^^ happen in cases where guardians/adults killed the children.
