House fire in Allenton

MICK Philpott, 56, set a fire to his home at 8 Victory Road in Derby. The May 11 2012 fire killed six of his children. He is guilty of manslaughter. He never meant to kill. He meant to frame his former mistress, Lisa Willis. She lived with Philpott and Mairead Philpott, his wife, 32. He would sleep with the women on alternate nights.

Then in the February before the fire, Lisa left. Philpott wanted revenge.

Philpott’s plan was to start the fire then save the children. He would be the hero. Lisa would be the villain. With the fire raging, his two accomplices called the emergency services from the back garden. But Mick never made it back into the house. The fire, started with petrol, was too intense.

Mairead and Paul Mosley, 46, are also guilty of manslaughter.

As he was sent down, Philpott crossed himself and was heard to say: “It’s not over yet.”

The dead are: Duwyane, 13, Jade, ten, John, nine, Jack, eight, Jesse, six and Jayden, five.

Other things we learned in the case are:

* Mick Philpott has appeared on the Jeremy Kyle Show and on an ITV documentary about the benefits system.

* Assistant Chief Constable Steve Cotterill said of the press conference following the blaze: “He entered the room in quite a jovial manner, a bit like an excited child… I would have expected him to be completely and utterly destroyed. If push comes to shove, not able to present himself at a press conference. He did not show a great deal of emotion or upset.”

* Other tells at the press conference were that Mairead never looked at the camera and he never appealed for information.

* Mosley and the Philpotts were in a ménage-a- trois. On the night of the blaze, Michael Philpott and his friend Paul Mosley played pool before having sex with Mairead on the night of the blaze.

* He was a father to 17,
