The north London council that dealt with the Baby P and Victoria Climbie cases has apologised after failing to prevent the abuse of a toddler who suffered "extensive injuries" at the hands of his family.
The boy, referred to only as Child T, was twice taken to hospital but returned to his mother and heroin addict stepfather before eventually being taken into care in June 2011 when he was aged four.
At one stage he was found to have more than 50 bruises on his body, while he told a doctor of being hit with a belt and a stick by his stepfather.
Haringey Local Safeguarding Children Board launched a Serious Case Review (SCR) into the matter, which found failings by the police, social workers and medical staff who saw him and his three siblings.
