Ayeeshia death: 'Someone should be held responsible'

A mother has been jailed for a minimum of 24 years for murdering her 21-month-old daughter, who died with injuries likened to those of a car crash victim.

Kathryn Smith, 23, stamped Ayeeshia Jane Smith to death in Burton-upon-Trent, Staffordshire, in May 2014.

The toddler was under a supervision order and family spokesman Robert Wade said that "someone should be held responsible and accountable within the social services".
