The significant case review into the death of Liam Fee will be "thorough and comprehensive", a child protection body has said.

A probe is ongoing into the circumstances leading up to the death of Liam, aged two, who was murdered by his mother Rachel Fee and her partner Nyomi Fee.

Dougie Dunlop, vice chair of Fife Child Protection Committee, described the death as a "tragedy" and said the body would reflect on the case "to see whether there is any scope for improvement".

Mr Dunlop said: "Liam's death was a tragedy that has left everyone deeply shocked and saddened.

"We want to provide reassurance that this independent review will be thorough and comprehensive."
