Police have taken away a caravan and minibus from outside the house in Derby where six children died in a fire that was started deliberately.

A police spokesperson said it was 'standard procedure' and the vehicles would be forensically examined.

Six of Mick and Mairead Philpott's children died in the fire in Victory Road, Allenton and neighbours have raised nearly £4000 for the family through the D-Js Trust, with more fund-raising events planned this weekend.
