Mick Philpott accused of killing six of his children in house fire 'staged a rehearsal of how he would save them and talked of wanting a bigger home'

Mick Philpott and his wife Mairead, pictured above with a friend, and another friend Paul Mosley are alleged to have acted out how they would save the youngsters from the property in Allenton, Derby, once the fire took hold. Mr Mosley's nephew's girlfriend told the court that Philpott had been 'going on about wanting a bigger house'.
