A fireman who was the landlord of a house in which a couple and three children were killed by an arsonist, has been jailed for failing to take fire safety precautions.
Jay Liptrot, 43, from Prestatyn accepted that he placed Lee-Anna Shiers, her partner Liam Timbrell and their son, niece and nephew, who were staying the night, at risk of death.
The prosecution at Caernarfon Crown Court accepted the plea earlier this week. Today he was jailed for 15 months.
North Wales Police acknowledge and respect the Courts decision today on what has been a complex investigation and emotional court case. The family attending court has taken some comfort from the guilty plea.
North Wales Fire and Rescue said Liptrot is a part time firefighter at Prestatyn and in light of this incident it was introducing a policy which requires staff to declare any conflict of interest, such as being a landlord.

An arrest warrant has been issued for a man who stole perfume worth £9,000 from a Boots store by loading it into a wheelie bin.
Lee Hollender, 39, first smashed the front window of the store in Prestatyn with a breeze block in August.
Once inside he shattered cabinets with a hammer and loaded the contents into the bin.
Hollender, a father-of-eight of Chinley Grove, Birmingham, who’d been on a caravan holiday, was caught after he’d cut himself in the store and his blood identified him.
Magistrates at Llandudno had granted bail after he pleaded guilty to burglary, and sent him to the crown court for sentence. When he failed to arrive at Caernarfon court today a warrant was issued.
