'No information' Tia was at risk of physical harm

A Merton Safeguarding Children Board inquiry into the death of murdered schoolgirl Tia Sharp said there was no information she was at risk of physical harm.

Although there are lessons to be learned and areas in which services can be improved, there was no information known to any agency which would suggest that Child A's (Tia Sharp's) life would end as it did, or indeed that she was at any risk of physical harm.
