NEAVE INQUIRY WOULD COST COUNTY£1.5m, SAYS COUNCIL

The family of the murdered six year old boy Rikki Neave has reacted angrily to Cambridgeshire county councillors' endorsement of the report it commissioned from the Bridge Consultancy, reports BBC Cambridgeshire.

The county council's social services committee accepted the report on the handling of the Neave case, but the family have called for a full public inquiry - something the Labour group leader Janet Jones rejects.

She said: 'First of all, a public inquiry could take something like 18 months to two years to get established and start. It would be enormously costly and as far as the county council is concerned it would cost us in the order of£1.5 million, which would come off front line services'.
