The most recent visit by HMIC last month found that the force had made "extensive changes", investing significantly in child protection and developing a comprehensive plan designed to ensure the required improvements are made.

The inspection in January identified that the force was not allocating enough resources to child protection, and staff had received insufficient training in how to safeguard children.
