The Independent on Sunday has reported that the north London council at the centre of recent tragedies has launched yet another serious case review involving child abuse.
It comes after the council promised to protect children after the deaths of Baby Peter and Victoria Climbe.
The latest investigation is the council's sixth known investigation into serious incidents of child abuse since the report into Baby Peter's death was published in 2009.
A spokeswoman for Haringey Council said: "We have made a number of improvements to children's services in the past few years. We would not comment on serious case reviews that may be under way in Haringey."
The paper says two adults have been arrested and charged with child abuse, whilst the child alleged to be the victim of abuse has been taken into care.
The news comes after it was revealed on Tuesday that Haringey's former head of children's care services had agreed a compensation pay-out after being unfairly dismissed in the wake of the Baby P tragedy.
The new investigation has reportedly started only a month after the publication of Haringey's last serious case review into Child T, a three-year-old who was beaten so badly with a belt, stick and cable that he was hospitalised yet was still returned to the family home, where the abuse continued.
