Bradford Crown Court heard that social workers had visited the family after hearing concerns from neighbours, but no action was taken.
Ambulance staff found Leticia Aalayah Wright lying on the living room floor of her home. She was covered in bruises, both old and new, the court heard. Nicholas Campbell QC, prosecuting, said: "The cause of death was multiple injuries and they were mainly forceful blows to Leticia's head and to her abdomen. These injuries had been inflicted between two and three days before she died. She had suffered other injuries over a longer period than that".
I wonder what odds I can get from William Hill that the enquiry will call for "greater communication" between the 193 State agencies involved and that the local authority will announce that "new procedures have been put in place".
"Procedures", of course, are what you have when you don't have a culture.
