A coroner is today expected to release the body of little Hamzah Khan so his funeral can go ahead. The four year old's mummified body was found in his cot at his home in Bradford - two years after his death.
His mother, Amanda Hutton, was jailed for 15 years earlier this month for allowing her son to starve to death. An inquest will open at Bradford Coroner's Court this morning, as a formality, so his body can be released and his funeral arranged.
