'Shocked' neighbour says she never saw Daniel Pelka

A neighbour of Daniel Pelka’s mother Magdalena Luczak and her partner Mariusz Krezolek has told ITV News Central that she never saw four-year-old Daniel in the flesh.

We are shocked.

When I close my eyes I see his face I’ve seen in the newspaper, when I talk about it, I still get angry inside.

I think both of them [Luczak and Krezolek] should be punished very badly.
