Joining us today to discuss the issues surrounding cases like this are Denise Robertson, who is outraged at what she calls a lack of 'proper investigation' in child abuse cases, and, social worker Joanna Nicolas, who argues that cases like this are extremely rare and says a criminal conviction is not what's important when discussing the interests of child welfare.

Roast root hummus

This is a great snack or starter, served with crudités or warm flatbreads, or spooned into toasted pittas with salad and/or some shredded cold meat. Use whatever leftover roast roots are to hand, and if you have some roast onions or garlic, chuck those in too.
