Mairead Philpott, wife of Mick Philpott, is being questioned by her defence lawyer. She is warned that she is likely to remain in the witness box for some time.
Did you light the fire? "No". Did you help anybody else start the fire? "No". Did you see Mick or Paul start the fire? "No," Mairead says.
Would you do anything which would result in you spending the rest of your life without your children? "No".
Would you take part in anything that would harm your children or risk harming your children? "No".
She tells the jury that she was badly "abused" by her father when she was three or four years old, and that she was raped while on holiday as a teenager.
