A fresh report into why child protection workers failed to intervene to save murdered schoolboy Daniel Pelka has been launched, investigators have announced.
Four-year-old Daniel, from Coventry, was beaten and starved to death by his mother, Magdelena Luczak, and stepfather Mariusz Krezolek, who are currently serving a minimum of 30 years in prison for murder.
The Coventry Safeguarding Children Board will be digging deeper into the breakdown of the network of social workers, health professionals, teaching staff and police, after a damning initial report revealed numerous and repeated failings.
The report found that despite a number of danger signs - including broken bones, arriving at school with black eyes, and teachers catching him raiding bins for scraps of food - nobody ever spoke to Daniel alone, or intervened in his care.
