The independent chair of Birmingham Safeguarding Children Board (BSCB), which published the report into Keanu Williams' death, has expressed "very deep regret" on behalf of all the agencies involved.
We apologise unequivocally for what were totally unacceptable and unnecessary failures, both collectively and individually, in every organisation which had contact with Keanu.
No one walked in his shoes. Staff were distracted by his mother's needs and by taking what she was telling them at face value.
