A Birmingham City Council spokesperson said:
"We are aware of this allegation and can confirm internal enquiries were undertaken in accordance with Birmingham City Council's policies and procedures. Following this investigation no evidence was found which would require further action against the social worker involved.

Consequently it would not be appropriate to comment further until those enquiries are completed. "
