Mairead describes seeing the flames

On being asked what she wanted to do when Mick Philpott opened the lounge door and saw flames, Mairead Philpott tells a jury she wanted to 'run past him, go through the flames, and up the stairs.'


Philpott house cleared

The former Philpott family home on Victory Road in Derby is being cleared, ahead of it being demolished. Its former tenants, Mick and Mairead Philpott, were jailed for the manslaughter of their six children in a fire there, last year.
