Derby fire: Half-brother pays tribute to young victims

The 14-year-old half-brother of six children who died in a house fire in Derby has been paying tribute to his siblings.

Thirteen-year-old Duwayne Philpott, his sister Jade, 10, and brothers John, nine, Jack, seven, Jessie, six, and Jayden, five, were all killed in the blaze in Allenton on Friday.

Mikey Philpott, from Clipstone, Nottinghamshire, said the family were struggling to come to terms with the tragedy and were keen to get justice for the young victims.
