Toddler's killers were known to child protection agencies

Fourteen agencies missed opportunities to save a three-year-old boy who was killed by a couple who were meant to be caring for him, a report has found.

Ryan Lovell-Hancox died on 24 December 2008 from a brain injury he received at Christopher Taylor and Kayley Boleyn's home in Bilston, near Wolverhampton.

Wolverhampton's Safeguarding Children Board has released the findings of a serious case review into Ryan's death.

Report author Martin Burnett said: "Records were deficient and did not properly show the background level of risk posed by these two people."
