Mairead Philpott was freed early and placed in a taxpayer-funded hostel


A mother who killed her six children in a house fire is offered yoga classes and a Christmas basket in a hostel for £ 600 a week after her early release.

Mairead Philpott, 39, was released from prison after serving less than half of her 17-year sentence for manslaughter last month. Since then, she has been relocated to a taxpayer-funded 20-bed house midway.

Philpott killed her children after burning down the family home in Derby in 2012 and was reportedly "delighted" that she got her earliest possible release date from HMP Send in Surrey.

Her female-only temporary shelter, which she will reportedly stay in for three months before being released under a new name, offers residents painting classes and yoga sessions, sources claim.

Your room has its own bathroom and the residents keep “mood diaries” in which they can summarize their dream interiors for their own house.

A source told The Sun, “The center has yoga and painting classes, and residents keep journals so they can plan what their new home will look like and add pictures of the places they want to visit. & # 39;

Local shops supply the Halfway House with free paraphernalia such as toiletries that are made available to residents.

Regular drug and alcohol tests are done in the middle of the house and a 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. curfew is followed by Philpott.

Officials will also search her room for contraband.

After leaving the hostel in the south of England, a charity will place her in her own accommodation and help her choose the jobs or training courses that best suit her.

Mick Philpott led Mairead and the couple's boyfriend, Mosely, into a plan to get a bigger meeting house by burning down his derby house and blaming ex-lover Lisa Willis for the crime.

A new Channel 5 documentary explores the five mistakes that led to the arrest of Mairead and Mick Philpott. Mick was sentenced to life in prison and Mairead lived to be 17, along with accomplice Paul Mosley, after the ailing trio set fire to the couple's derby home, where their six children, ages 13-5, slept. Five children died on the scene from smoke inhalation, and one died in hospital from injuries sustained in the fire

A new Channel 5 documentary explores the five mistakes that led to the arrest of Mairead and Mick Philpott. Mick was sentenced to life in prison and Mairead lived to be 17, along with accomplice Paul Mosley, after the ailing trio set fire to the couple's derby home, where their six children, ages 13-5, slept. Five children died on the scene from smoke inhalation, and one died in hospital from injuries sustained in the fire

His intention was to save the sleeping children through an upstairs window, but the plan went catastrophically wrong and the fire claimed the lives of Duwayne (13), Jade (10), John (9), Jack (7), Jesse (6) and Jayden (5).

They all died from inhaling smoke.

Initially, the couple received sympathy and wept at a press conference when they asked for help in finding the killer or killers.

But their behavior later aroused suspicion, and the couple was subsequently charged alongside Mosely.

In convicting Mick Philpott, the judge described the conspiracy as "an evil and dangerous plan" that was "beyond the understanding of a right thinking person".

She said there was "no precedent" for the case, describing it as a "uniquely serious offense".

The Philpotts and Mosely were found guilty of manslaughter. Mick was sentenced to life in prison and Mairead and Mosely to 17 years in prison.

The murderous couple divorced after being imprisoned.

Last week, Philpott was first seen after her release when she was driven to Halfway House in an Audi Q3 as part of a convoy.

Photos show the killer in a yellow parka-style jacket with the hood pulled over his head when she was led inside by plainclothes police.

The hostel staff and officials carry their belongings, including a clear prison bag containing toiletries, slippers and clothing.

The news of her imminent release was slammed by the Crime Prevention Center's think tank, which said, "This is no justice."

The taxpayer pays thousands of pounds worth of Philpott to stay in a hostel with a new identity.

The seventeen-year-old father, who married Mairead in 2003, used his children to take advantage of a staggering £ 60,000 a year benefits.

Philpott, previously jailed for stabbing his schoolgirl lover 27 times, wove a web of lies to get away with the crime, and even planned to be quick, with generous donations from the local community to be paid for the funerals of to get rich his children.

David Spencer, of the Center for Crime Prevention, said: “This absolutely mocks the UK criminal justice system.

"She has served little more than a year for each of the six innocent lives she ruthlessly took away."

A source also told the Sun, "Your convoy was like one given to a celebrity, not a mother who killed her six children."

Philpott's mother Vera, 62, said she was angry that her daughter was released so early.

In October, it was revealed that Mick Philpott refused to visit his 13-year-old son on his deathbed as the teenager battled injuries from the fire started by his father.

Paul Callum, Detective Superintendent Paul Callum who led the investigation, first revealed the harrowing detail in Channel 5's 5 Mistakes That Caught a Murderer. He said Philpott needed to be convinced by the support officials to visit the dying son Duwayne.

After he finally agreed to leave, he flirted with co-workers and his demeanor left detectives convinced that the father of 17 children was responsible for his children's deaths.

Philpott was sentenced to life in prison and Mairead to 17 years in prison after their children Jade (ten), John (nine), Jack (seven), Jesse (six) and Jayden (five) in the fire in the family home in May 2012 Osmaston had died from smoke inhalation, Derby.

The documentary reveals the five mistakes made by Mick, Mairead, and their accomplice Paul Mosley, including the couple's suspicious press conference days after the fire and Mick's inappropriate behavior in the hospital and morgue.

The program also addresses the couple's outrageous night when Philpott sang Elvis songs in a local pub after his children died, the conversations between Mick and Mairead that were recorded by police, and the gasoline that was on his Clothes was found.

"He didn't want to go to Birmingham where Duwayne actually died from his injuries," said Callum.

"And I understand the family liaison officers had to persuade him to go to Birmingham to see Duwayne," he added.

When he finally did visit, officials were warned that Phillpot had acted inappropriately and flirted with the nurses who were caring for his dying son.

Philpott was equally inappropriately visiting the Derby morgue to officially identify his dead children.

Callum revealed, “He was talking to the undertakers.

He made inappropriate comments about her breasts, about things he wanted to do sexually to them.

Then he would fall in a heap and pretend he was upset. Then he would sit up and say something inappropriate. He was a very strange character.

"In the morgue we know he called his children 'little s *** s'. In every context in which children have died, I don't know how this can be considered appropriate."

Mick's longtime friend Mick Russell, who has been one of his prison mates ever since, accompanied him to the morgue and recounted the terrifying moment in the documentary.

"He was smiling and joking and that. And then we went in and had the kids in the room," Russell said.

The family friend said he was more upset about the children's death than his buddy.

& # 39; They were all in a row. Five small children are lying there with burns on their arms and hands. I just cried. & # 39;

Philpott's suspicious antics were one of the top five mistakes that led to his belief.

The documentary lists the four others, starting with the press conference Mick and Mairead held after the fire, which was viewed by many as insincere.

Local reporter Martin Naylor, who was at the news conference for the Derby Telegraph, said all journalists in attendance could say that the couple's grief was "crocodile tears" as they dabbed their dry eyes with handkerchiefs.

"We all looked at each other and our faces had changed and then we all thought, 'something is wrong,'" said Naylor.

"I think what he was trying to do is tell everyone, 'That's how the victims behaved, now I've done this, that's the end," and then the case would go on and maybe the heat on him would have gone " Officer Callum suspected.

"After the press conference we got calls from everyone saying, 'It's obvious it's Mick and Mairead, why don't you arrest him," he added.

Martin Naylor also shared how Mick tried to take advantage of the teddy bears that well-wishers had left outside the house by trying to sell them

Visiting a local pub, the Navigation Inn, was also one of the incriminating mistakes the couple made prior to their arrest.

“They thought they were celebrities, said the landlady of the Inn Jeanette Doherry.

“I would say you enjoyed the attention.

Mairead and Mick aroused suspicions of journalists and investigators with their "crocodile tears" during a press conference about the fire in May 2012

"They drank double Jack Daniels, they seemed very tipsy, they kissed and touched and he ran his hand through her hair," she said.

& # 39; It wasn't very appropriate.

"He sang" Suspicious Minds (by Elvis Presley), which was a very strange song, "added Doherty.

The Philpotts' devious plan to appoint an ex to kill their children

The Philpotts married in 2003 and shared a cramped three-bedroom meetinghouse in Derby with his lover Lisa Willis and their children.

Philpott led his wife and accomplice Mosley into a scheme to get a bigger meeting house by burning down his house and accusing Mrs. Willis of the crime after she left him.

He also hoped to regain custody of his five children who had recently moved out of the house.

His intent was to rescue the sleeping children through an upstairs window, but the plan went catastrophically wrong after using too much gasoline and the fire spiraling out of control.

The flame claimed the lives of Duwayne (13), Jade (10), John (9), Jack (8), Jesse (6) and Jayden (5).

Philpott, previously jailed for stabbing his schoolgirl lover 27 times, wove a web of lies to get away with the crime, and even planned to be quick, with generous donations from the local community to be paid for the funerals of to get rich his children.

In the days after the fire, Philpott began his elaborate ruse to look impeccable, even showing up at a press conference for information.

During a fortnightly surveillance at the hotel where they were set up by police in May after the fire, the couple was heard whispering about the case, with Philpott recording that he told his wife to follow your story.

They were charged by police in connection with the deaths on May 30, and Mosley was arrested in the months that followed after telling a friend that he planned to save the children.

Police initially accused the trio of murder, but downgraded it to manslaughter because, although their actions were disgustingly ruthless, the defendants had no intentions to kill the six.

However, at a trial in April he was found guilty of the horrific crime and sentenced to life in prison.

The judge described the conspiracy as "an evil and dangerous plot" that was "beyond the understanding of a right thinking person".

"And everyone said," Why should he do this after his children die? "They did not mourn their parents."

During the investigation into their house being destroyed by the fire, Mick and Mairead were staying in a hotel that, unbeknownst to them, had been tapped by the police.

The couple's third mistake was discussing the police interviews in their hotel room and trying to pull their stories together.

In an outrageous recording that can be heard in the documentary, Mick was heard asking his wife, “What did you say about the number of times I climbed ladders?

And Mairead was heard answer, "I lost the count of the number of times you climbed the ladders."

The couple had tried to paint Mick as a hero who had climbed the ladders several times to save the children from the fire.

Police also guessed a police car that was taking Mairead and Mick to jail after they were arrested.

Mick was heard whispering: "Are you sticking to the story?" to his wife.

Another mistake was that Mick, at the start of the investigation, blamed his ex-lover, who had left him months before the fire, responsible for the fire.

This led the police to speak to her, Callum explained.

"For the first 24 hours, Mick told everyone he could that it was his ex-girlfriend who started the fire over the lawsuit and that she had molested him," he said.

“We thought about it for a long time, and we felt that the only way to do it is to arrest them.

However, it quickly became clear that it had nothing to do with the fire that made the officers circle back to Mick.

The couple's most important mistake, which secured their arrest and linked them directly to the crime scene, was the traces of gasoline that forensic scientists found on their clothes.

The fire had been started by spreading a large amount of gasoline at the foot of the stairs in Philpott's house.

Forensic expert Rebecca Jewell stated in the documentary that she was able to determine that the gasoline found on the clothes of Mairead, Mick, and their friend Paul Mosley was Shell gasoline, the same gasoline that was used in the arson.

Rebecca said she testified in court during the trial of Mick, Mairead and Paul. She said, “I didn't mean to catch his eyes.

& # 39; It was cold. I've obviously seen suspects every time I testify, but that remains one of the scariest looks a suspect has ever given me in my eyes. & # 39;

Mick is currently serving a life sentence of at least 50 years.
