Poppi Worthington abused by father before death, judge rules

A 13-month-old girl was sexually assaulted by her father shortly before her sudden death, a judge has found.

Poppi Worthington was found with serious injuries at her home in Barrow in December 2012.

Her father, Paul Worthington, 48, was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault but not charged with any offence.

He always denied any wrongdoing and issued a statement saying he did not accept the latest findings and had never hurt his daughter.
