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.
