Sky News published this video item, entitled “Arthur Labinjo-Hughes’ death: Were lockdown and cuts to blame?” – below is their description.

A former police boss has said cuts to the service is hampering attempts to protect children from abusive parents.

David Jamieson, who was the West Midlands police and crime commissioner at the time of Arthur’s death in June 2020, said austerity made worse by lockdown had caused a “lethal cocktail” that “allowed neglect to happen”.

Six-year-old Arthur, from Solihull, was abused, neglected and killed by his stepmother, Emma Tustin, and his father, Thomas Hughes.
