A fire broke out at the house, in Victory Road, Allenton, in the early hours of Friday, May 11.
Sixchildren Duwayne Philpott, (aged 13), Jade Philpott (10) and brothers John Philpott (9), Jack Philpott (7), Jessie Philpott (6) and Jayden Philpott (5) all died as a result of the fire.
In view of the arrests, I would urge anyone who may have been holding back, not felt comfortable to voice their concerns or not had the confidence, to do so now. They have my personal reassurance that we will deal with their information sensitively.
We still need information to help us in this inquiry. The latest arrests are just one step further in the investigation. It is absolutely vital that if you know anything you think could help us, come forward now, do not wait any longer. It is important that we find justice for these six young children.
