Dad furious that toddler's killer was left alone with her

The father of a toddler who was kicked to death has told ITV News of his fury that the man who killed her was allowed access to his daughter despite warnings from social workers that he was dangerous.

Dean Harris, 20, was jailed for a minimum of 17 years after kicking his girlfriend's two-year-old daughter, Amina Agboola, out of frustration after she soiled herself.

Amina's father, Reuben Agboola, said he was "furious" to learn someone with a history of domestic violence was left alone with his child when he had been stopped from seeing his daughter after splitting with her mother.
