A new report looking into the exact reasons why child protection workers failed to intervene in the case of Daniel Pelka follows a written request by a government minister.
MP Edward Timpson, the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Children and Families, wrote to the Coventry Safeguarding Children Board after a damning 76-page serious case review what he labelled "a number of basic practice failures".

Now these failures have been set out publicly in your report, people will want to know why they occurred.
He urged the board to look at why information was not recorded properly, why it was not shared between agencies, and why four separate assessments failed to identify the risk to Daniel.
He said the answers were "critical" to improving child protection practice across the UK.
