Child killer Mairead Philpott offered yoga classes at £600-a-week taxpayer home

 

Child killer Mairead Philpott is staying at a hostel that offers yoga classes to residents after her release from prison.

The 39-year-old can also reportedly take part in art classes at the women’s hostel where she is now living.

The monster was handed a 17-year sentence for manslaughter after killing six of her own children in a horrific arson attack in Osmaston, Derby, in 2012.

She served half this term and was moved to a women’s bail hostel in the south of England after being freed from HMP Send in Surrey last month.

Taxpayers are forking at £600 a week to keep Philpott housed in her en-suite room, according to a report.

However, the probation service said nearly all of the ‘running cost’ was spent on security and employees.

The killer will be urged to make a ‘mood diary’ at the accommodation filled with things she hopes to get after leaving the hostel, according to the Sun.

These include pictures of furniture, bedding, plants and even holidays she can look forward to.

A source told the Sun : “The centre has yoga and painting classes laid on and the residents keep diaries in which they can plan how they want their new homes to look and they put in pictures of the places they’d like to visit as well.”

Philpott will reportedly stay in the hostel for up to 12 weeks while she waits for a place to live.

A group of six volunteers will become her ‘pals’ to prevent her from feeling lonely or vulnerable, it is claimed. 

However, a probation service spokesman said Philpott’s accommodation is ‘basic’.

The spokesman added: “These are basic rooms where offenders are held and watched closely by trained probation staff.

“Nearly the entire running cost is spent on the security and employees who keep the public safe.”

Mid Derbyshire MP Pauline Latham said she is disgusted Philpott has been allowed out of prison so soon.

She added: “I remain disgusted that this woman has her liberty while her daughter and five sons lie in their graves.

“I am dismayed that she served less than 18 months for taking the lives of each of those poor children.”

Philpott’s husband, Mick, was jailed for life in 2013 for starting the blaze at the family home.

He was told he must serve at least 15 years behind bars before being considered for parole.

The Philpotts appeared at a news conference five days after the blaze, in which they both sobbed, while Mick expressed disbelief at the deaths and thanked fire crews.
