'Weaknesses' remain in child protection services

Weaknesses remain in child protection services at a council which was heavily criticised after two boys tortured and sexually humiliated two other youngsters, according to a new report by Lord Carlile.

I found that Doncaster today is not faced with the shambolic situation of early 2009.

However, there remain weaknesses, which have been highlighted by the consequences of a severely critical report following an Ofsted inspection in October 2012 of the arrangements in Doncaster for the protection of children.

– Lord Carlile
