Welsh children are for the first time officially more at risk from violence, abuse, and neglect than English children, reports The Western Mail (p5).

Social services managers report that the number of cases in Wales increased 27.6% last year. The total of 2,029 means that three children in every thousand are officially at risk, reports The Mail.

The increase may partly be as a result of better monitoring by the re-organised authorities, reports the paper.
