Authorities failed Blake Fowler

Blake Fowler
"A seven-year-old boy who died from a severe head injury tried to tell the authorities about the abuse he was forced to endure at home - but his pleas were repeatedly ignored, according to a damning report."

"Teachers, health workers, police and social workers have all apologised after failing to act swiftly enough to save schoolboy Blake Fowler."

"Before his death in December 2011, the little boy was beaten, exposed to pornography, forced to drink vodka, and neglected, the report found."

"No one has ever faced any criminal proceedings over his death, despite traces of the ceiling material Artex found in Blake's hair by forensic experts following his fatal head injury."

"The boy was turning up to school showing signs of injury and on one occasion told teachers the bruising from his head was a result of his dad banging his head on a bike and bed, the report added..."

"A serious case review into Blake's death, published by the Local Safeguarding Children's Board (LSCB), states Blake was 'physically, emotionally and sexually abused' and suffered neglect in every way."
