So, so sad, the poor children.

They have named the father as Mick Philpott. I googled him he is all over the internet as a benefit scrounger, did a documentary with Ann Widecombe on benefit scroungers. His facebook is filled with lots and lots of personal information that he probably should've kept private. I hope this was an accident but the families lives looked so dysfunctional, from what he says on his fb page someone had threatened to kill them all.

I know. It doesn't take away what's happened to those poor children at all. But, what a family. He had 15 children with 2 women from what I understand. Both women have been pregnant at the same time, deary me! One of his eldest sons accused him of kiddy fiddling on fb and disowned him. What a mess!

A man of 55 and a woman of 31 arrested on suspicion of murder.
Coincidently, the age of the parents of the children.

Both of them have been arrrested according to the DM.

Also the press conference video - 'Tears, lies and videotape?' I'm not sure that they are crying, there are no tears on their faces and the thing is that the father barely mentions the children, but give thanks to all concerned. We hear nothing about the children they've lost, which would be my first thought.

I am really shocked to hear that the parents are now under suspicion as I didn't think for a moment that they could be involved.

Apparently they were sleeping downstairs Kitti which is how they got out.

I Hope it wasn't because they wanted yet another bigger house and they were doing this to try to prove that they were being harassed to get this move....and it went terribly wrong.

5:45pm UK, Tuesday May 29, 2012

The parents of six children killed in an arson attack on their home have been arrested on suspicion of murder.
Mick Philpott, 55, and his wife Mairead, 31, have been detained in connection with the attack on the house in Derby.

They are in custody and will be questioned by officers.

The fire broke out at the house, in Victory Road, Allenton, in the early hours of Friday, May 11.


Derby Fire Deaths: Timeline
:: May 11: Jade Philpott, 10, and brothers John, nine, Jack, eight, Jessie, six and Jayden, five, killed in blaze on Victory Road, Derby.

All the victims were asleep in upstairs rooms of the house when the fire broke out in early hours.

A 28-year-old woman and man, 38 are arrested on suspicion of murder on the same day but later released without charge.

:: May 14: Another brother, Duwayne, 13 dies in hospital from injuries sustained in the fire.

:: May 16: Parents Mick Philpott, 55, and wife Mairead, 31, weep uncontrollably at emotional press conference as they thank emergency services who fought to save their children.

Police reveal petrol was used to start the blaze, which originated underneath the family home's letterbox.

:: May 18: Coroner Dr Robert Hunter opens inquest and calls on local community to "search their conscience" and contact police with any information to help catch those responsible.

:: May 29: The Philpotts are arrested in Derby on suspicion of murdering their children.


Duwayne Philpott, 13, Jade Philpott, 10, and brothers John Philpott, nine, Jack Philpott, seven, Jessie Philpott, six, and Jayden Philpott, five, all died as a result of the fire.

At a news conference Derbyshire Police Assistant Chief Constable Steve Cotterill asked people to come forward with any information about the fire.

"Please don’t see these two arrests as the police inquiry coming to an end, this is not the case," he said.

He had earlier issued a statement in which he said: "I suspect there may still be people with crucial information who have not yet come forward to speak to us.

"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."

He added that the investigation would be lengthy, and urged the local community to be patient.

"Although the fire happened more than two weeks ago, this is a complex inquiry and it will take time for us to piece together the events from that tragic evening.

"I know this case has deeply affected the local community and residents want answers as to what happened and why.

"But I would ask them to be patient and to continue to show the excellent support they have given us to date. Our investigations are detailed and painstaking and they will take time."

A 38-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman, who were arrested on suspicion of murder shortly after the fire, were released without charge the following day.

Mr Philpott and his wife faced the media at a news conference five days after the fire.



Five children died in hospital, and a sixth later passed away in hospital

He repeatedly wiped away tears as he thanked those who tried to rescue his children and members of the local community for their support.

Talking to reporters for about two and a half minutes, Mr Philpott repeatedly paused to compose himself and said he and his wife had decided to donate Duwayne's organs for transplant.

Tributes and gifts, which remain outside the house more than two weeks after the fire, are being moved with the family's agreement. They will be put into a nearby church because of the likelihood of rain.

The Priest was interviewed and apparently the Public were going to donate for the Funeral Expenses including the coffins so he doesn't know what is
going to happen now. I tell you NBY, what with this and one man eating another man's face and Humans are supposed to be superior to animals.??

Good news isn't news. We get two men one of which totally mad on LSD. We get the terrible arson and dead children. News is the equivalent of fairy stories in the past, which are very gruesome indeed. Fairy stories are rather better because many do have a moral content.

But these terrible events are very rare - people do good things all the time. It just isn't reported.

Morning tigger, yes I realise there is good but whether because the Media brings all this bad news to our doorstep we are reading of atrocities like the
Syrian carnage and these other incidents and very little about goodness in the world.

If you scroll down to the video of Steve Cotterill, the chief constable - what do you think? I would certainly give him my vote to head an inquiry into the disappearance of Maddie. He should be heading it even now.

Yes, Redwood was so obviously pro McCann instead of concentrating on trying to find out what happened to Madeleieine.

Back on topic......this is an example of the goodness in people.

A book of condolence for six children killed in a house fire in Allenton has been signed by "hundreds" of people.

Reverend Canon Elaine Jones of Derby Cathedral said people had been moved to offer support to the Philpott family.

"They're expressing their words in a book which can be given to the family after the funeral. You see them lighting a candle and sitting quietly."

Police have appealed for patience as they continue to investigate the recent blaze on Victory Road.

Assistant Chief Constable Steve Cotterill said the force was continuing to offer support to the grieving parents Mick and Mairead Philpott.

Jade Philpott, 10, and brothers John, nine, Jack, eight, Jessie, six and Jayden, five, all died in the fire earlier this month.

Another brother, Duwayne, 13, died three days later in hospital.

Thousands of pounds have also been donated by well-wishers to help cover the cost of a funeral for the children at Derby Cathedral although no date has been set yet.

By Amy Oliver

PUBLISHED: 11:24, 22 June 2012 | UPDATED: 14:01, 22 June 2012

They were told to wear bright colours in order to celebrate the lives of six innocent children killed after a house fire tore through their home.

But mourners could not contain their grief when the six little white coffins containing the bodies of the Philpott children arrived on horse-drawn carriages at St Mary's Catholic Church in Derby town centre this morning.

The hearse carrying the body of Jade Philpott, 10, led the cortege with a horse sporting a pink plume of feathers. Five more hearses, each with blue feathers, followed, carrying the bodies of her brothers John, nine, Jack, eight, Jesse, six, Jayden, five, and Duwayne, 13.

Then the children's coffins were lifted gently out and up onto the shoulders of more than 20 pallbearers as they slowly made their way into the church.

Each coffin bore the child's name in blue for the boys and pink for Jade, who also had a pink princess printed on the front. The boys also had emblems on their coffins, each different, a fitting tribute to their personalities. John's featured a picture of toy soldiers, Duwayne's the Derby County emblem.

Respect: A man throws flower petals over Jade Philpott's coffin as it and those of her five brothers are carried out of St Mary's Catholic Church in Derby town centre following their funeral service

Emotional: Pallbearers had tears in their eyes as they carried the Children's coffins out of the church while family and friends sobbed and hugged each other



Final journey: The children will now be taken to Chaddesden cemetery to be buried in a private service for the family

Tragic end: Five of the six children died in the blaze at the semi-detached house in Allenton, Derby, in the early hours of May 11. Duwayne died two days later in Birmingham Children's Hospital

Jade, obviously a big fan of pink had a spray of crimson roses on top of her coffin, while the boys had yellow and white flowers. Family members and friends wept as they threw yellow roses in front of the procession before it disappeared into the church.

The full requiem mass began with the priests greeting the coffins outside as the church bells rang out across Derby. After the children's symbols - the same as had featured on their coffins - were placed, a reading from the first letter of St John, Chapter 3: verses 1-2 was read before prayers were said for each of the children and for the fire service who did their best to save them.

'We pray for all those women and men who work in our emergency services, especially those of the fire service who risk their lives in the service of others. Lord give them the courage and strength to carry out their duties in the knowledge that they are all in our thoughts and prayers.'

A poem read out during the service called Angels on High included the lines: 'And when you have a moment, just close your eyes, for they are all only a breath away, in heaven there are no goodbyes.



Solemn: The coffins of Jade, 10, Jayden, five and Jessie, six, are carried into St Mary's Catholic Church in Derby town centre ahead of the funeral service today





Procession: Two white horses sporting pink plumes of feathers had pulled the carriage containing Jade's coffin while five others containing the bodies of her brothers followed on behind





Heartbreaking: Featuring a picture of a pink princess, Jade's coffin was carried at the front of the procession into St Mary's today





Celebration amid sadness: The white coffins containing the body of John, nine, (left) and his younger brother Jack, eight, (right) follow on behind. John's coffin was printed with toy soldiers





'Duwayne, Jade, John, Jack, Jesse and Jayden, in the arms of angels fly away'

The moving service lasted for 90 minutes before the coffins were carried out of the church and down the road to the waiting carriages for the two-mile journey to the private burial in Chaddesden, two miles out of the city.

Members of the public gathered outside to pay their respects as the procession passed, some threw rose petals as family and friends sobbed and hugged each other.

Many were accompanied by small children, who were also crying. Two police officers had stood guard outside the church during the service, ready to see off anyone out to cause trouble on a sombre day.

In the order of mass, Duwayne, pictured wearing his school uniform, was described as being charming and caring. Despite being camera shy, the Derby County fan was also hailed a ladies' man who 'always had endless queues of girls fancying him'.

The 13-year-old, the eldest of the six children, was said to have taken on the role of 'protector' of his younger siblings and enjoyed going to Derby County football games with his father Mick and his younger brothers.

It said: 'Duwayne loved to spend his time with the family pet Crackle (African Grey parrot) who was always shouting after him and his mum Mairead.

Elsewhere in the order of service, Jade was described as a beautiful princess who had become a mother hen to her younger brothers. 'She would always carry them around on her hip,' it read.

It described her as a creative girl who liked to play on the Nintendo Wii. 'She had a permanent smile on her face and was always content.' She always tried to get involved in rough and tumble with her brothers but was never allowed.

The 10-year-old was said to be well regarded at school, very intelligent and would boost class morale.

John was described as a 'cheeky chappy' who was always lively and ready to pick a fight with all the boys. He was determined to be the last man standing. He was named Supergrass as he would always worm his way out of getting out of trouble and blame somebody else,' the tribute said.

'No matter how much he was in trouble he would always crack a smile and find it a joke.'



A celebration of their lives: The order of service featured a picture of all six children on the front and emotional tributes to each of them inside

'Protector': Eldest child Duwayne, 13, was described as a 'charming and caring young boy' and a 'real lady's man' in the order of service

'Mother hen': Only girl Jade, 13, became a 'mother hen to her younger brothers' always carrying them around on her hip

'Cheeky chappy': John, nine, had a 'daredevil personality' but his teachers described him as 'cheerful, smiley and polite'

'Quiet': Jack, eight, was 'cute, cuddly and content with everything' and was the quietest of his siblings who loved to watch Peppa Pig

'Mischievous': Jesse, six, was 'crazy, clumsy and cheerful' and a little boy who will be remembered for his loving nature

'Baby': Nicknamed the 'miracle baby' because he was early, Jayden, five, was 'bouncy and hyper-active' and had a penchant for crisps



Upset: Mourners were urged to wear bright colours but they could not contain their grief as they walked into the church for the children's funeral service



Brave: Relatives weep as they follow the children's coffins into the church. A death notice placed in the announcements section of a local newspaper paid tribute to the children. It read: 'They all touched the hearts of so many'

Gathering: Huge crowds assembled outside the church across a footbridge, their colourful brollies shielding from the rain that had just started to fall





Assembling: Members of the public gather outside St Mary's church as the Philpott children's coffins are carried in

John was also a Derby County supporter and his daredevil personality saw him compete with Duwayne in jumping off climbing frames on to the family trampoline. He had wanted to pursue a career as a soldier in the Army.

Little Jack was described as 'a real pretty boy' with bright blue eyes, who loved to spend most of his time on his Nintendo DS and watching Peppa Pig, images of which were pictured on his coffin.

The order of service described him as 'cute, cuddly and content with everything'. The tribute added that Jack said he was like Duwayne because he was shy and bashful and that he was the quietest sibling.

The youngest of the six, Jayden, was nicknamed 'the miracle baby' by his parents after being born prematurely. The five-year-old was described as a bouncy and hyperactive boy, who always wanted to have fights with his older brothers.

Haunting: The tragic six Philpott children posed for a photograph together without their siblings before their death. From clockwise, Duwayne, John, Jayden, Jade, Jesse and Jack



Charged: The children's parents Mick and wife Mairead Philpott, seen here weeping at a press conference in May following the devastating fire at their home have been charged with their murder and were not at the funeral today

'He loved lots of cuddles from family and friends,' the order of service read. 'Jayden's main pleasure in life was food. He could eat seven packets of crisps in one go if he could get away with it.

'He would go into the garden clean and go back into the house messy within minutes.' He was described as a real copycat who looked up to his big brothers.

'He was always the first one in the fights to run off crying to his mummy but some cuddles and kisses and he would be back to his gaming.'

Five of the six children died in the blaze at the semi-detached house in Allenton, Derby, in the early hours of May 11.

Duwayne died two days later in Birmingham Children's Hospital.

A death notice placed in the announcements section of a local newspaper paid tribute to the children.

It read: 'They all touched the hearts of so many. Wonderful brothers and a beautiful special sister of David, Richard, Michaela, Mikey, Aiden, Jordon, Shareen, Katrina, Kirk, Yawrey and Josh.

'Much loved and precious grandchildren of Peggy and the late John Philpott and Jimmy and Vera Duffy. 'Sadly missed by uncles, aunts and families.

'They will be so greatly missed by us all.'

The children's parents Mick Philpott, 55, and mother Mairead, 31, were notably absent from the list. They have been charged with murdering all six children in the blaze. They are set to go on trial in January next year.

Both have been remanded in custody and will not attend the funeral.

A third person arrested this week in connection with the house fire in Derby has been released on police bail.
