Boris Johnson orders review of Arthur Labinjo-Hughes case

Boris Johnson is ordering a review of the lessons to be learned from the tragic death of a six-year-old Arthur Labinjo-Hughes, vice Prime Minister Dominic Raab confirmed.

Mr. Raab said the prime minister wanted to assess how social services, local authorities and criminal justice agencies work together in cases of vulnerable young children.

Speaking to Sky News’ Trevor Phillips on Sunday, Mr Raab said he believes social workers should take a “more preventive approach” when reviewing evidence that suggests children may be at risk in their own home.

Arthur’s stepmother, Emma Tustin, 32, was jailed for life at Coventry Crown Court on Friday, with a minimum term of 29 years, after being found guilty of murder, while his father, Thomas Hughes , 29 years old, sentenced to 21 years for murder. manslaughter. Attorney General Suella Braverman ordered a review of whether the sentences were too lenient.

Solihull’s Local Child Protection Partnership launched an independent assessment after the case went to court that the boy had been seen by social workers just two months before his death, but they concluded that there was “no concern for protection”.

Mr Raab said: “There will be a local protection review, which will look at the actions of the local government, whether there are lessons that can be learned before that, whether there are any warning flags. Any notice can be issued sooner or not.

“And, the prime minister has made it clear, as well as we would like to see how social services and local authorities relate to the criminal justice authorities and what further lessons we can learn. .”
