Death blaze jury hears 999 call

A court has heard a 999 call along with covert recordings of a couple, who are accused of killing six children in a fire at their home in Derby.

The prosecution say the tapes which were recorded in a police van, show Mick and Mairead Philpott discussing their role in starting the blaze.

The pair, and another defendant, deny six counts of manslaughter.

Jon Brain reports.
