And another cold night on the web but temperatures recovering by the

:00:00.:00:00.

weekend. An independent report has identified

:00:00.:00:00.

"serious failings" in the care given to a baby from Kettering

:00:07.:00:10.

who suffered serious harm Rocky Uzzell and Katherine Prigmore,

:00:11.:00:12.

were both jailed last year, for inflicting catastrophic injuries

:00:13.:00:18.

on their five week old daughter. Rocky Uzzell and Katherine Prigmore

:00:19.:00:37.

were seen to laugh at the hospital where by the week old is a

:00:38.:00:43.

bull's-eye in a critical condition. Katherine Prigmore filmed her

:00:44.:00:45.

partner violently shaking and squeezing their daughter. This case

:00:46.:00:51.

highlights major failings of Kettering Hospital. Baby Isabelle

:00:52.:00:54.

was admitted here 6 times in 5 weeks yet not once did staff even consider

:00:55.:00:58.

that her parents could be to blame for her injuries. They mist to rib

:00:59.:01:03.

fractures. Had they recognised them they could have taken steps to have

:01:04.:01:08.

her removed from her parents to a more serious injury. The moral

:01:09.:01:15.

series warning signs were missed time and time again. On March 16,

:01:16.:01:19.

2014, Isabelle was admitted with leg pain.

:01:20.:01:37.

The next day, the parents were arrested. What is of particular

:01:38.:01:43.

importance is the repeat presentation to hospital over a very

:01:44.:01:47.

short period of time, that should bring an immediate child protection

:01:48.:01:51.

flag and top diction concern that would need to be checked. It appears

:01:52.:01:55.

that didn't happen. The couple lived in this maisonette. Shocked

:01:56.:02:02.

neighbours say they really saw them. Couldn't believe it. I knew

:02:03.:02:06.

something wasn't right because I only saw the mad with a pushchair

:02:07.:02:10.

once, nobody ever saw the baby. Isabel will soon turn 3. Unable to

:02:11.:02:14.

walk, talk, C and swallow, she is with foster parents and isn't

:02:15.:02:19.

expected to live until her teens. Kettering Hospital said there was

:02:20.:02:24.

profound regret over the missed opportunities to safeguard her and

:02:25.:02:27.

said it has introduced improvements to procedure to protect infants at

:02:28.:02:29.

risk. Well the head of the

:02:30.:02:31.

Northamptonshire Safeguarding Children Board said the case of baby

:02:32.:02:33.

Isabelle was one of I asked Keith Makin how

:02:34.:02:35.

it was allowed to happen. Primarily, 2 things. There was not

:02:36.:02:46.

sufficient information sharing between agencies, although I have to

:02:47.:02:50.

stress that itself wouldn't have necessarily lead to this awful

:02:51.:02:54.

outcome. More particularly, we are very concerned that the people at

:02:55.:03:01.

the accident and emergency acidity were not curious enough about

:03:02.:03:07.

whether the reasons for admission was safeguarding or not. They were

:03:08.:03:12.

not curious about whether abuse may have taken place. 1 thing that

:03:13.:03:16.

stands out on the report is that an x-ray was done on the child's chest

:03:17.:03:20.

and broken ribs were missed, how easy is it to miss broken ribs? I'm

:03:21.:03:27.

top of the medical experts at actually, it's quite hard to tell in

:03:28.:03:32.

small babies with a rib has been broken or not -- I am told by the

:03:33.:03:36.

medical experts. But the issue as I understand it from the report is

:03:37.:03:42.

that the x-rays were not examined by a paediatric radiologist. If the

:03:43.:03:48.

examination had taken place as it should have been, it is very likely

:03:49.:03:52.

the child would not have been released from hospital, very likely

:03:53.:03:56.

wouldn't have gone back to the parents and this awful outcome would

:03:57.:04:01.

very likely that of happened. What are you recommending to stop it

:04:02.:04:06.

happening again? There is a different arrangement now for

:04:07.:04:09.

examination of x-rays in babies and young children. And the sharing of

:04:10.:04:16.

information, particularly about fathers, has been reinforced so that

:04:17.:04:22.

is all backed by training programme for all relevant staff. We as a

:04:23.:04:27.

board are monitoring and ordering the impact of that. Are you 100%

:04:28.:04:31.

sure that if a baby was brought hospital today and it was being

:04:32.:04:35.

abused by its parents that it would be picked up and acted upon? Not

:04:36.:04:43.

ever 100% guarantees in safeguarding but what we are assured of is that

:04:44.:04:48.

the Rossettini I have thought about would be enacted, questions will be

:04:49.:04:52.

asked in safeguarding would be considered as a primary issue.

:04:53.:04:54.

The television entertainer Rory McGrath has been give

:04:55.:04:55.

a suspended ten week jail sentence today after admitting harassing

:04:56.:04:58.

The court in Huntingdon was told McGrath and the married woman had

:04:59.:05:04.

been having an affair. Mike Cartwright reports.

:05:05.:05:11.

Arriving at court, his wife by his side. Rory McGrath, who the court

:05:12.:05:17.

was told pursued a course of conduct that was unstable and tempestuous.

:05:18.:05:24.

After harassing a man married mother in her 40s for more than a year. She

wanting to finish it. After she said he had become difficult and

:05:35.:05:39.

unpleasant company. They had shared intimate messages and texts. Rory

:05:40.:05:43.

McGrath threatening to publish glossy images of them. For months he

:05:44.:05:47.

sent her texts, e-mails, called and followed her. The judge was told of

:05:48.:05:52.

his deep remorse. Outside his wife next to him, a solicitor spoke on

:05:53.:05:59.

his behalf. This has been a dark time and thankfully it's now over. I

:06:00.:06:03.

wish to thank the judge and apologise to my wife and family, and

:06:04.:06:08.

to thank them for the incredible support during this time. I now want

to move on with my life. In Cambridge Park, he tailed the woman

long-term. On TV from the 90s he became a household name. His

:06:48.:06:51.

behaviour, likened to a midlife crisis. His actions described as

:06:52.:06:59.

bizarre and increasingly desperate. In sentencing, the judge told Rory

:07:00.:07:03.

McGrath it was a persistent and consistent, controlled imposition of

:07:04.:07:06.

yourself on the victim and those close to her. He was ordered to pay

:07:07.:07:11.

?200 in costs and a 5 year restraining order was imposed.
