Haringey Council has apologised after failing to prevent the abuse of a toddler who suffered "extensive injuries" at the hands of his family, following the Baby P and Victoria Climbie cases.
Council leader Claire Kober said: "We fully accept the findings of this SCR and apologise unreservedly for the failings set out in the report. Together with partner agencies, we could and should have intervened more swiftly.
"This case occurred during a period of rebuilding in our children's service. We have been working hard over the past three years to make significant improvements, which have been recognised by Ofsted".
