The former boss of children's services at Coventry City Council has quit his new job, after being severely criticised in a report into the death of Daniel Pelka.
Colin Green, who retired from his post at the end of last month, was due to take up a new role at Tower Hamlets Safeguarding Children Board in London.
A review published earlier this week stated that a number of opportunities to intervene were missed by school staff, social workers and police officers.
