The parents of a 23-month-old boy who died of a drugs overdose will be sentenced by a High Court judge today.

Emma Bradburn and Simon Jones pleaded guilty last month to causing the death of Daniel Jones at their home in the Penn area of Wolverhampton.

Bradburn, 34, admitted causing or allowing Daniel's death, while Jones, 30, pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

A serious case review into the death is being conducted by Wolverhampton Safeguarding Children Board.
