Full report: minute's silence held for Philpott children

A minute's silence has been held at Derby County's match against Ipswich, in memory of the six children who died in a house fire in the city last year.

Moments before Derby County kicked off at Pride Park Stadium this afternoon, thousands of fans paid tribute to Jayden, Jesse, Jack, John, Jade and Duwayne, who died when their father, Mick Philpott, set a fire that took their lives.
