Yesterday at the scene a friend of the family, who would not be named, said Mr Philpott had been talking all week about his hopes for a positive outcome to the hearing.
She said Miss Willis and their children were living together at a different address to Victory Road.
She said: "He thought today was going to be one of the best days of his life."
