Children's services in Coventry rated 'inadequate'
Two years after the death of 4 year old Daniel Pelka, children's services have been rated as inadequate by Ofsted inspectors.
Last year the council promised improvements after being heavily cricised for not spotting the signs of Daniel's abuse.
The four year old was starved and beaten to death by his mother and stepfather at their home in the City in 2012 and last year the pair were jailed for 30 years.
The lead councillor for children's services has vowed there will be a "rapid improvement" in services following a disappointing Ofsted inspection.
Councillor George Duggins, Coventry City Council's Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, believes despite the judgement, there are many positives to build on and committed additional resources to ensure services are improved as quickly as possible.
In a statement, the Council has announced that an additional £5.6 million is being invested in the service which will be mainly spent on creating more social work teams to deal with the huge increase of referrals coming through their 'front door'.
