Protesters demand answers over Daniel Pelka's death

A peaceful protest will be held opposite Coventry council house today to demand answers over how tragic four-year-old Daniel Pelka was allowed to slip through the system.

Campaigners say a serious case review published last month failed to fully explain why authorities failed to protect him.

The protest coincides with a campaign calling for the government to introduce 'Daniel's law', which would make reporting of child abuse mandatory.

Daniel's mother Magdalena Luczak and step-father Mariusz Krezolek are both serving life sentences after being found guilty of his murder.
