A big trial was coming to a end at the crown court today. The sentencing of three people who purposely or accidentally killed six children in a house fire in Derby last year. What makes it worse, is that two of the accused are the parents of the said children.

It's quite a complicated case, but basically it seems that the father set fire to his house, so he could implicate his ex girlfriend, as she had left the family home some months earlier. As you would expect, the worlds press was there waiting to know if a prison sentence was in the offering.

For some reason, the judge had decided to defer her decision until tomorrow.  So all the reporters, film crews and journalists stood around wondering what to do with the rest of their day.
