‘Shameless Mick’ gives obscene gesture as he’s sentenced to life for killing six of his children in house fire
A father of 17 who killed six of his children in a house fire was jailed for life Wednesday after a judge said he cared about no one but himself.

Mick Philpott, dubbed Shameless Mick by the British press for his jobless lifestyle which he bragged was paid for by state benefits, remained defiant to the end, giving spectators in court an obscene gesture after he was sentenced.

Philpott, his wife, Mairead, and a friend, Paul Mosley, set the fire while six of the couple’s children slept. The plan was for Philpott to rescue the children and emerge a hero. The blaze would also be blamed on Philpott’s former mistress so he could gain advantage in a bitter custody battle over five of his other children.

But the fire quickly got out of control and Jayden, Jesse, Jack, John, Jade and Duwayne, aged five to 13, all died. (Mark St George / Rex Features)
