West Yorkshire Police say they hope the family of a 7 week old baby, who was allowed to die by her father, can now start to rebuild their lives. Lee Davison has been jailed for 8 years for allowing or causing the death of his daughter Krystal.

Detective Superintendent Scott Wood said: "After considering all the evidence presented to the Court a Jury found Davison guilty of allowing the death of a child and he has today been sentenced appropriately.

"This has been a tragic case where a 7 week old girl has lost her life before its even had chance to really begin, and I believe justice was served in bringing this case before the courts."
