Following Angela Wrightson's murder, independent reviews are being undertaken by the Teesside Safeguarding Adults Board regarding Angela Wrightson and the Hartlepool Safeguarding Children Board regarding the two teenagers.
Both Boards have commissioned the reviews on behalf of all of the agencies involved.
The purpose of the serious case reviews is to determine whether the actions taken by the teenagers, leading to Angela's murder, could have been prevented by the agencies who were involved with Angela and the teenagers.
Speaking of Deborah Jeremiah who is leading the review, Ann Baxter, Chair of the Teesside Safeguarding Adult Board, said they need to consider "all circumstances" leading up to Angela Wrightson's murder.
This is a tragedy for everyone involved and the Safeguarding Adult Review will consider all the circumstances leading up to Angela Wrightson’s murder.
Deborah Jeremiah is a leading expert in her field and I am sure that she will leave no stone unturned in identifying whether any lessons can be learnt by any of the agencies involved.
In the sentencing of two teenage girls for the murder of Angela Wrightson, Judge Mr Justice Globe referred to an "emotional letter" from Angela's mother.
He said: "She (Angela's mother) will never be able to blink away the horrifying image of her daughter's battered body when she saw her in the mortuary. She cannot understand how you could have been as violent as you were. She's not alone in that."
Judge Mr Justice Globe said the girls' attack included "gratuitous degradation" as they published photographs online and trashed Angela Wrightson's house.
It follows their sentencing today for the murder of the 39-year-old in her home in Hartlepool.
Psychologist Emma Kenny says the Angela Wrightson case is "tragic for all involved" because the 15-year-old girls did not understand the consequences of their actions.
It follows the sentencing today.
