Mairead Philpott To Appeal Sentence

Mairead Philpott - who was jailed for killing her six children in a house fire - is planning to appeal her 17-year sentence.

The 32-year-old was jailed alongside her husband Mick at Nottingham Crown Court last month after being found guilty of the manslaughter of Jade Philpott and her brothers John, Jack, Jesse, Jayden and Duwayne.

Mairead Philpott took part in a plan to set fire to the couple's home in Victory Road, Allenton, Derby last May in an effort to frame his former mistress.
