Philpott child fire deaths 'a plan that went horribly wrong'

A couple started a house fire which killed their six children in "a plan that went horribly wrong", a court has been told.

Michael and Mairead Philpott, along with third defendant Paul Mosley, deny six counts of manslaughter.

The prosecution allege they started the fire to frame Mr Philpott's former mistress amid a custody battle.
