  • "The extent of the failure to protect Victoria was lamentable. Tragically it required nothing more than basic good practice being put into operation...doing the basic things well saves lives..... Lord Laming

    **Victoria Climbie was born in November 1991 in the Ivory Coast. To escape the poverty of Africa , her parents entrusted her to her great aunt who brought her to Europe. Victoria was tortured to death by that great-aunt, and the woman's boyfriend. She died in February 2000 in London aged eight. It has been reported that Victoria need not have died. She had 128 injuries*Baby P was found dead in his home in Tottenham, north London,. He was just 17 months old when he died in Tottenham, north London, in August 2007 at the hands of his mother, her violent partner, and his brother.He suffered more than 50 injuries despite being on the at-risk register and receiving 60 visits Baby P's death has created a fundamental shift in the nature of child protection work*Millie 15-month-old baby believe she may also have been the victim of a serious sex attack Mr Arthur McElhill, Ms Lorraine McGovern and their children, Caroline, Sean, Bellina, Clodagh and James. All members of the family died in the fire*****************
