An inquiry into the tragic death of a Doncaster teenager has made 21 recommendations and admitted there were 'missed opportunities'.
13-year-old Casey Kearney was stabbed in a random attack earlier this year by Hannah Bonser, who had a history of mental health problems. She was jailed for 22 years after being found guilty of murder.
An independent report said local organisations missed opportunities and no single agency "owned" Bonser's care. The NHS Trust involved said they accepted all the findings and recommendations.
Responding to the report, published by Doncaster NHS, into the care provided to Hannah Bonsor, Labour MP for Don Valley Caroline Flint said:
Agencies missed opportunities to help a woman with a history of mental health problems who said she was going to harm someone, before stabbing a 13-year-old girl to death in Doncaster.
Hannah Bonser was jailed for a minimum of 22 years after being found guilty of murdering Casey Kearney in Elmfield Park on Valentine's Day.
Casey was going to a sleepover at a friend's house when Bonser - a total stranger with a diagnosed personality disorder and a history of cannabis abuse - stabbed her once with a 16cm kitchen knife she had bought earlier. More to follow.
