Hamzah Khan: Serious Case Review criticised by MPs

A report into the death of Hamzah Khan has claimed that a similar tragedy "could not be avoided" in the future.

Hamza died after being starved by his mother Amanda Hutton. His body lay in a cot in her bedroom for almost two years.

Today the man who headed up the review says systems let the little boy down. He added that lessons will be learned and no one person was responsible.

But within minutes of the report being published, the Children's Minister said he had "deep comcerns" over the review and claimed it failed to fully explain "missed opportunities".

Chris Kiddey reports.
