Lessons learned by Cumbria Police following “grotesque failures” in the Poppi Worthington case go before a meeting next week.

Action taken by police chiefs since the 13-month-old toddler’s death on 12 December 2012 will be discussed at Barrow Police station on Monday.

The Cumbria Police and Crime Panel is meeting with the county's crime commissioner Peter McCall, who holds the chief constable to account.

Mr McCall commissioned a review to identify gaps in “safeguarding” vulnerable people in Cumbria, while police chiefs have made the issue a priority in their “Big Six” improvement plan.

Next week’s report states that since Poppi’s death six years ago, the Constabulary had “undertaken an enormous amount of work”.

It said police have made “a number of improvements to ensure that mistakes in complex crime investigations, such as the death of a child, mitigate the risk of this happening again.”

Previously, Mr Justice Francis, told a High Court hearing that in the crucial aftermath of Poppi being discovered, police appeared to have “closed their minds” to the possibility she had been killed.

The Crown Prosecution Service subsequently ruled out criminal charges, while her father, Paul Worthington, has always denied any wrongdoing.

The failures were the subject of an Independent Police Complaints Commission investigation which compelled police to take action. The improvements were recognised a year ago in a child protection review by (HMICFRS).
