The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has revealed their findings from an investigation into the way police handled the case of a mother who stabbed her 3-year-old daughter.
The investigation found that police could not have "reasonably anticipated" the death of three-year-old Alia Ahmed Jama, but added that the potential risks to Alia as a result of her mother’s (Iman Omar Yusuf) behaviour may have been "better recognised".
They added, "several calls to police and attendance at a police station could with hindsight have flagged up an increased risk to her daughter."
No misconduct issues were found in relation to any individual officers.
