Further information sought by officers investigating the death of six children in the Victory Road house fire

November 14, 2012, 5:59 pm

Police officers investigating the death of six children in a fire at Victory Road, Allenton have issued a further appeal for information.

Duwayne, Jade, John, Jack, Jessie and Jayden Philpott all died as a result of the fire on May 11.

Their parents and another man have been charged with their murder and appeared at Nottingham Crown Court last Thursday (November 8).

Assistant Chief Constable Steve Cotterill said: “Since the court appearances of Mick and Mairead Philpott and Paul Mosley last week several people have come to us with information or doubts that have been nagging them during the last few months.

“I suspect there may still be other people with crucial information who have not yet come forward to speak to us.

“I would urge anyone who may have been holding back, not felt comfortable to voice their concerns or not had the confidence, to do so now. They have my personal reassurance that we will deal with their information sensitively.

“It is absolutely vital that we find justice for these six children. If you know anything you think could help us, come forward now.”

The investigation is still ongoing and police executed a search warrant at premises in Nottinghamshire on Monday. Further searches of premises in Derby have been conducted today (Wednesday Nov 14).

Anyone with information should contact the police on 101.
