The leader of Bradford's Safeguarding Children Board has responded to concerns raised about the Hamzah Khan Serious Case Review.

The review concluded that the death of four year-old Hamzah, whose mummified body was found in his cot nearly two years after his death, could not have been predicted.

That was then challenged by Children's Minister Edward Timpson.

In a letter, board chairman Professor Nick Frost responded, saying the findings showed that the threshold of concern was not reached to trigger a child protection investigation.
