The director of a child protection charity has said better training is needed in nurseries for workers to spot the signs of child abuse.
Donald Findlater, Director of Research and Development at the Lucy Faithfull Foundation, says this will reduce the likelihood of abuse occurring.
His advice follows a review into the rape of a toddler by a paedophile nursery worker at Little Stars Nursery in Nechells. The report criticised council staff for not properly investigating concerns about Paul Wilson's behaviour.
