Ayeeshia-Jayne Smith death: Social workers ‘missed danger signs’

      Welcome to the new boss, the same as the old boss.


      Lessons learned?

      Murder of Victoria Climbié In 2000 in London, an eight-year-old Ivorian girl, Victoria Adjo Climbié (2 November 1991 – 25 February 2000), was tortured and murdered by her guardians. Her death led to a public inquiry and produced major changes in child protection policies in the United Kingdom. Wikipedia

      The same protection policies that should have saved the sexually exploited children in Rotherham.

      Jay dismissed child safeguarding policies to, ‘no one checked to see if they were any good’, that shows us the level of incompetence of social services.
