The grandfather of a six-year-old girl who was murdered by her father says he hopes the inquest into her death will finally allow "justice to prevail".
Ben Butler, is serving a life sentence for the murder of his daughter Ellie who died from severe head injuries in 2013. She had been returned to her parents following an 11 month custody battle.
The youngster's mother, Jennie Gray, was jailed for child cruelty. The inquest, which opens today at Croydon Coroner's Court, will examine the roles of the authorities involved in Ellie's care before she died.
Speaking to ITV London, Ellie's grandfather, Neal Gray said:
The inquest is expected to last for two weeks.
