Serious case review into Lowestoft deaths is published

The Suffolk Local Safeguarding Children Board has published a serious case review, following the death of Fiona Anderson and her 3 children in April 2013.

Two experts who have never before worked in Suffolk were commissioned to write the report.

Ron Lock and Bob Cook were asked to explore who did what and why and identify any local practice could be improved in the future.

The independent Chair of the Suffolk Local Safeguarding Children Board, Peter Worobec, said. "The loss of Fiona Anderson and her children was a tragedy and deeply impacted on the local and the wider community.

Throughout this review, the Board has kept the lives of the family and in particular the children, central, so that any future lessons can be learned.

As professionals from a number of agencies had been working with this family at the time of these tragic events, it was particularly important for this review to be rigorous and independently led."
