Dyson Allen in court for manslaughter sentencing

Dyson Allen, who killed four siblings in Lancashire by torching clothes in their wardrobe, is due to be sentenced shortly.

The arsonist, who'd started fires previously, has given no reason why he did it. The 19-year-old was convicted of manslaughter.

Dyson Allen is sobbing as he's led into court from the cells. He's shaking in the dock.

Dressed in a suit and tie, and crying into a tissue, the killer looks little like his police mugshot.
