Judge tells Mick: You are a disturbingly dangerous man

The judge has told Mick Philpott that he is a "disturbingly dangerous man" after sentencing him to life in prison:

I sentence on the basis that you did not intend to kill your children ... [But] you did intend to subject your children to a terrifying ordeal.
