Five-year-old Jayden Philpott was found wearing his school uniform
THE youngest child to die in the Victory Road fire was wearing his school uniform.
Jayden Philpott, five, was in his uniform when he was one of six children pulled from the blaze house.
Jayden was declared dead shortly afterwards, along with brothers John, nine, Jack, seven, and Jesse, six, and sister Jade, 10. The oldest of the children, Duwayne, 13, died a day later.
Details of what the children were wearing emerged on Monday at the continuing trial of the children's father and mother, Mick and Mairead Philpott, on charges of their manslaughter. Family friend Paul Mosley is also charged.
