Two years after the death of the Coventry schoolboy Daniel Pelka, children's services in the city have been judged 'inadequate'.
Ofsted inspectors said the department, which failed to stop the four-year-old from being starved, tortured and murdered - is not improving quickly enough.
Tonight, campaigners have described the situation as 'depressing' and say children are still suffering.
This evening the leader and deputy leader of Coventry City Council called for a meeting of all councillors to debate the findings of the report on the 15th April.
The council says it is committed to improving services for the most vulnerable children.
