Serious Case Review into Daniel Pelka's death, full report

A Serious Case Review has been published into the death of Daniel Pelka.

The four year old was murdered by his mother Magdalena Luczak and her partner Mariusz Krezolek in March last year, after a campaign of cruelty described at the time as "incomprehensible".

Today's review says there were a number of opportunities missed by school staff, social workers and police officers to uncover the abuse he was suffering. It makes fifteen recommendations for how children's services in Coventry should be improved.
