Inspectors criticise police over abuse inquiry conduct

Police in England and Wales have been accused of failing to carry out effective investigations into allegations of child abuse and neglect.

An Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) report looked at 576 cases across eight forces and suggests there was an “inadequate” response in 220 cases.

The National Police Chiefs Council acknowledged that forces had to “fundamentally change” their approach.

The Home Office said police would be given the resources to improve.
