The mummified body of a four-year-old boy was found in a cot in his mother's bedroom, almost two years after he starved to death, a jury at Bradford Crown Court has heard.

Hamzah Khan was still dressed in baby clothes when police made the discovery at his house in Bradford in September 2011, the court was told.

The boy's mother, Amanda Hutton, 43, denies manslaughter.

Ed Thomas reports.
