Doncaster children's services 'inadequate', says Ofsted

Help

Some of Doncaster's most vulnerable children are being put at risk by poor standards of council care, an inspection has found.

Ofsted said inadequate arrangements were in place to protect children.

The service has been criticised in the past over the deaths of seven children and failures that led to two boys being tortured in Edlington.

The council said it was dealing with an "overwhelming" number of children and struggling to get experienced staff.
