The trial of a couple accused of the manslaughter of their six children, who died in a fire in Derby, has been hearing evidence about traces of petrol found in their house after the blaze.

Mr Philpott, 56, denies the manslaughter of his six children.

Mairead Philpott, 31, and a third defendant, their friend Paul Mosley, 46, also deny the manslaughter of the children, who died at their home in Allenton, Derby, last May.
