Hutton a 'real danger to any child' she cares for in future

Judge Thomas told Hutton that she "must be regarded as a real danger to any child with whom you may live, or in any way have care of in the future".

He said the manslaughter of Hamzah involved "failing to provide him with anything like adequate nourishment over a long period of time - in short you starved him to death".
