Serious case review into Philpott deaths will look into what future lessons can be learned

The NSPCC says the serious case review launched by Derby City Council into the deaths of six children who died in a house fire in Derby last May will see whether anything could have been done to prevent their deaths.

They will also look into what lessons can be learned for the future.

Mick Philpott was sentenced to life in prison yesterday for the manslaughter of his six children.

His wife, Mairead, and friend, Paul Mosley, were each sentenced to 17 years behind bars.

The charity says the review into the deaths of the Philpott children will take around six months to complete.
