Petition To launch a public inquiry into the failings in the Poppi Worthington case
The family court judge and senior coroner ruled that 13-month-old Poppi Worthington was abused before she died. No one has been charged for her death after officers made mistakes in the investigation. Poppi was unknown to social services before she died, concerning for child protection in the UK.
We call on the Prime Minister to order a public inquiry to make recommendations to:
- improve child safeguarding processes
- strengthen the police disciplinary process
- determine whether Cumbria Police has truly learnt the lessons of this case
- Examine whether the resources provided to agencies involved in child protection to fulfil their safeguarding responsibilities.
