A man who rescued children from a house fire in Manchester says

:00:00.:00:00.

he just did what he had to do to save their lives.

:00:07.:00:09.

Two adults died in the blaze in Withington in the early hours

:00:10.:00:12.

of yesterday and five people remain in a stable condition in hospital.

:00:13.:00:15.

When I got there, I could hear screaming from the girl

:00:16.:00:23.

in the back garden, then I used the front gate...

:00:24.:00:27.

Robert Chilowa was awoken by the sound of screaming

:00:28.:00:30.

When he ran down the street, he found a house ravaged by fire.

:00:31.:00:38.

The eldest girl had already jumped, but more children were hanging out

:00:39.:00:41.

of the bedroom window as the smoke billowed out.

:00:42.:00:43.

The moment I saw them, I just put my hands out

:00:44.:00:46.

and I reassured them, "Jump, I will hold you," so the boy

:00:47.:00:52.

jumped first and I couldn't hold him there because of the smoke and heat,

:00:53.:00:59.

so he managed to fall onto the floor and I put him to the safe

:01:00.:01:03.

place and the girl jumped and I put her in a safe place.

:01:04.:01:12.

A man and woman were pronounced dead at the scene, but the children

:01:13.:01:15.

and a man who suffered a heart attack after being pulled

:01:16.:01:17.

out of the house are recovering in hospital.

:01:18.:01:19.

You can still smell the remains of the fire in the air as a joint

:01:20.:01:23.

investigation by the fire service and the police continues.

:01:24.:01:25.

They're using specially trained sniffer dogs who can detect

:01:26.:01:28.

accelerants to try and establish how the blaze began.

:01:29.:01:37.

The streets around the property on Parsonage Road remain

:01:38.:01:41.

closed as forensic teams carry out their work and it's

:01:42.:01:43.

an experience that will take some time to sink in for the man

:01:44.:01:47.

I feel happy that, you know, at least I managed to save two lives

:01:48.:01:52.

A fund set up to help care for the children of a terminally ill

:01:53.:02:01.

mum from Wirral has almost reached the half way point

:02:02.:02:04.

Mother-of-three Julie Bennet has cancer and is being cared

:02:05.:02:11.

She lost her husband Mike to the same disease just days ago.

:02:12.:02:17.

A new centre offering free legal advice and support

:02:18.:02:19.

The Greater Manchester Law Centre aims to provide access to free

:02:20.:02:24.

and independent legal advice as well as campaigning for justice

:02:25.:02:26.

Bolton actress Maxine Peak is one of its patrons.

:02:27.:02:31.

The access to legal advice should be as important

:02:32.:02:42.

as access to free healthcare, and I don't think people realise

:02:43.:02:45.

that till they found themselves in that position and most people

:02:46.:02:48.

think they never will, but you never know that moment

:02:49.:02:50.

and it's so important that there are places like this

:02:51.:02:53.

If not, how will people ever afford it?

:02:54.:02:58.

Adults and Children from across Lancashire will be

:02:59.:03:00.

making a splash in Burscow this week for the annual North West Puddle

:03:01.:03:03.

Back due to popular demand, this is the third year running

:03:04.:03:06.

that the Martin Mere Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust has held

:03:07.:03:09.

the event, where the jumps are judged on three main qualities.

:03:10.:03:11.

Victoria Fellowes from the trust explains what makes a good one.

:03:12.:03:14.

Just to give you a little bit of advice on how to create

:03:15.:03:17.

the perfect jump this week, we're looking for creativity

:03:18.:03:19.

of jump, so maybe you want to land on your knees or do a star-jump

:03:20.:03:23.

We're also looking for the height of the splash, but most of all we're

:03:24.:03:27.

just looking for people who want to have fun.

:03:28.:03:30.

In the Premier League, Manchester United are

:03:31.:03:32.

Middlesborough were 0-0 in their match against Everton

:03:33.:03:39.

and later Liverpool will take on Tottenham Hotspur.

:03:40.:03:42.

It has been a rather dull, damp start to the day.

:03:43.:03:50.

Grey skies and quite a lot of drizzle.

:03:51.:03:53.

As we continue through this weekend we're likely to see a few more.

:03:54.:03:59.

We have a weather system crossing tonight and that could give us

:04:00.:04:03.

some wintry showers, particularly over the

:04:04.:04:05.

It's a cold night and we still have the easterly breeze

:04:06.:04:11.

so were showers may bring colder air, that's where we see them

:04:12.:04:14.

turning a touch wintry, temperatures holding between two

:04:15.:04:16.

and 3 Celsius, the cloud and breeze helping with that.

:04:17.:04:18.

Tomorrow, some showers are blown in from the east,

:04:19.:04:20.

wintry over the tops of the Pennines, but temperatures

:04:21.:04:23.

during the day not doing much better, pushing up to around 3 or 4

:04:24.:04:26.

Celsius, perhaps more shower along the coast,

:04:27.:04:32.

It's not until we head into the start of the new working

:04:33.:04:35.

week where we see some drier air so temperatures will start

:04:36.:04:38.

to improve and we're looking at something in the way

:04:39.:04:41.

of brightness as we start the new working week on Monday.

:04:42.:04:47.

Good afternoon. An afternoon to snuggle up in front of the telly and

:04:48.:05:08.

watch some rugby. It's been a cold winter's day. Not just for humans.

:05:09.:05:16.

This shot was taken earlier. There was some sunshine in Scotland, here

:05:17.:05:19.

a beautiful afternoon. That was the expectation for most. It's bleak out

:05:20.:05:24.

there. A mixture of rain and snow on the radar. You have to go a long way

:05:25.:05:29.

up the hills to find settling snow. Into the evening and temperatures

:05:30.:05:31.

begin to fall again, we could see some of the white stuff turning up

:05:32.:05:35.

again at lower levels across eastern Counties of England and quite a lot

:05:36.:05:40.

of snow piling up over the Pennines in particular on a brisk wind, it is

:05:41.:05:44.

going to feel cold wherever you are with temperatures hovering close to

:05:45.:05:46.
