We can confirm that officers from Derbyshire Constabulary are making inquiries into allegations of further offences committed by Mick Philpott.
These allegations came to light during the investigation into the fire in May last year in which his children died. He, his wife and their friend were later convicted of the manslaughter of six children.
Investigations are continuing and it would be inappropriate to make any further comment at this time.
