Unison officer Joanne Kaye-Smith has queried the independence of a report out today on Cambridgeshire CC's handling of the death of six year old Rikki Neave.

Ms Kaye-Smith said that the county council had commissioned the report, which found that social workers ignored warning signs, from the consultancy The Bridge and had set the parameters.

She said that the researchers did not interview any of the social workers involved, reports the Independent (p2).

A Cambridgeshire CC spokesman stressed the report was independent and said: 'There have been interviews with 17 present and former members of staff.'
