A Serious Case Review has taken place as the alcoholic mother who starved her four-year-old son to death was jailed for 15 years today.
Paul Greaney QC, prosecuting, said various agencies' activities did not result in Hamzah Khan's body being discovered. Mr Greaney added:
The history of what then occurred is complex. Social services, education services and the police were all involved to a greater or lesser extent.
All of that demands attention and explanation, and we understand that a Serious Case Review has been conducted and has concluded.
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.
