Health secretary Frank Dobson has ruled out an inquiry into why the care system in Norfolk failed to notice that a child - who was murdered by her mother's boyfriend - was in danger.

The Eastern Daily Press reports that Mr Dobson was speaking two days after Graham Sate was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of five-year-old Lauren Creed, who suffered months of physical abuse before her death in October last year.

He said: 'Often when there have been inquiries into these sorts of things in the past, the first recommendation that's come out of some rather liberal people inquiring into it is that people need more training. Well, they didn't need more training in this case; they just needed a bit more common sense.'
