Mother Jailed For 'Horrific' Cruelty To Son

Full Article:

A young mother has been jailed for eight years following an "horrific" campaign of cruelty against her two-month-old son, who died hours after the final assault.
In a case with similarities to the Baby "P" case, former crack addict Claire Biggs, 27, dodged a string of checks by health worker as she attacked baby Rhys.
One of her children had already been deemed "at risk" and taken into care.
Against a backdrop of missed opportunities by health agencies and a breakdown in information sharing, she was able to repeatedly crush the helpless child's chest with impunity, fracturing 17 ribs.
As her convicted child sex abuser lover stood by and did nothing, she went on to break her son Rhys' right wrist twice as well as his shoulder.
