Chris Flegg, 40, died on January 14 last year when a fire broke out at his mother's house on Alive Fisher Crescent.

Emergency services were called to the property after a neighbour noticed flames coming from a first floor window.

Speaking at the time, neighbour Liam Stevens said he entered the house with another man and found Mr Flegg's mother in a downstairs bedroom.

While they were able to rescue her, they were unable to go upstairs to save Mr Flegg as the smoke was too thick.
