Hamzah Khan killing: Mother Amanda Hutton jailed for 15 years

The alcoholic mother who starved her four-year-old son, Hamzah Khan, to death and left his body in a cot for nearly two years has been jailed for 15 years.

Amanda Hutton also admitted neglecting five of her other children aged between five and 13, who were living in squalor.

The judge told her that she had put her selfish addiction to drink well before her responsibilities to her children.

He also had harsh words for the father, Aftab Khan, saying he seemed to have done little to improve the welfare of his children.

Mr Khan has been speaking to Ed Thomas.
