Two people convicted of child neglect

Two people have been convicted after a baby girl suffered serious injuries in Bracknell.

The charges relate to an incident in March last year where a seven month old girl was taken to hospital with a number of fractures to her legs.

At Reading Crown Court a 28-year-old man has been found guilty of causing GBH and child neglect and a 22-year-old woman has been found guilty of child neglect.

They cannot be named for legal reasons and have been released on bail until October 26 when they will be sentenced.

Det Con Andy Ward, who led the investigation, said it had been a lengthy and complex investigation.

He added: “The baby in this case was hurt by the people that should have been caring for her.

"Fortunately, it appears that she will make a full recovery from her injuries.”
