Mother and boyfriend 'killed baby boy on at-risk register after eight months of abuse'

Full Article:

A baby boy had his back broken at the climax of eight months of violence leading to his death, the Old Bailey heard yesterday.
The 17-month-old had been placed on Haringey council’s child protection register eight months before he died, the jury was told.
The mother and her partner were on police bail after being arrested on suspicion of assaulting the child before his death.
Doctors and social workers had seen the toddler in the run-up to his death, the court heard.
They feared that the mother could neglect and physically abuse the baby.
Yet 'Baby P' was still returned to his mother and died in circumstances which would be 'likely to fill any reasonable person with revulsion', the court heard.
