Secretary of State to arrange Baby P's mother release

A statement from the Parole Board has said that Secretary of State will make arrangements for the release of the mother of Baby P in due course.

We can confirm that a three-member panel of the board has directed the release of Tracey Connelly.

Tracey Connelly first became eligible for parole in August 2012, and at that time a Parole Board panel made no recommendation to release.

This is the second parole review for Tracey Connelly. The decision to release is a matter for the board, which is independent - arrangements and the date of the release are a matter for the Secretary of State.
