The step-father of Amanda Hutton has said social services and other agencies had failed to "look after" four-year-old Hamzah Khan, whose body was discovered at her home almost two years after he died in December 2009.
Mr Jackson added that it was "irrelevant" that Hutton had 'refused' help from services. He later added that he agreed with the sentencing, as she was jailed for 15 years today.
Following the conviction of Amanda Hutton, questions are raised over two little boys killed by those who were supposed to care for them.
A mother who starved her son to death threatened to kill her other children, a judge who sentenced her to 15 years in prison heard.
For two years the mummified body of four-year-old Hamzah Khan lay hidden in his mother's squalid house.
