Psychologist: Mick Philpott is a 'psychopath'

Psychologist Dr Glenn Wilson described Mick Philpott as a "psychopath" who was a "control freak" and "exhibitionist".

He told ITV's Daybreak: "Clinically I suppose you would call him a psychopath, anti-social personality disorder.

"There's a lot of narcissism as well, a bit of an exhibitionist. He liked to appear on television, on the Jeremy Kyle show, there was a documentary about him and his super-dad performances."
