With more disturbed weather on the way join me for a detailed weather


forecast. She was only four years


old and she was fed drugs by her own mother, who was supposed


to be looking after her. Now a new report out today shows


there were several missed opportunities by social services,


health services and the police, to protect Poppy Widdison


from Grimsby before she died. Laura Foster's been


following this case. Three and a half years ago Poppy


was found at her home What caused her death is still not


known, but tests showed Poppy had ingested a cocktail of drugs for up


to six months before her death - including heroin, sedatives,


methadone and ketamine. Last month Poppy's mother


Michala Pyke and Pyke's ex partner John Ritting were found guilty


of child cruelty after feeding Poppy illicit drugs


at Ritting's home in Grimsby. Poppy's grandmother


spoke outside court. She was just beautiful, she really


was. You couldn't wish for a better little girl. She was beautiful.


Toulouse are so suddenly and so cruelly, I hope they get a long


sentence. She is everything to us. She really was. That is a big hole

about but noone knew Pyke and Rytting were in a relationship


and that Poppy live with both Despite the evidence,


no-one knew what Poppy's life was like or the harm and risk


she was exposed to every day. Dr Peter Sidebotham says


Serious Case Reviews mean lessons can be learned from what happened -


but there are no guarantees something similar


won't happen again. Some children are harmed by their


appearance and that will continue to be the case. There is no way we can


accurately predict this in severe cases and therefore we have to


costly carry a difficult balance between supporting families and not


wanting to intervene too much and yet at the same time recognising


when there are risks. Tonight the charity,


NSPCC has called the review deeply worrying and say that effective


oversight and improved intervention Meanwhile, Pyke and Rytting are both


due to be sentenced next week. Last month the judge told them


to expect substantial prison are still combing through this


report and trying to and how so many people could have

the reports findings but says significant changes have already

there can be in agreement with shops etc. If shops want our business why

Hull has a rich musical heritage - but there's one woman from the city


who made big waves in the world of classical music you've probably


Ethel Leginska was famed as a pianist, composer and conductor


from the late 19th century until the 1930s.


Now, her success is being celebrated in a special concert


Our culture correspondent Anne-Marie Tasker has the story.


In her heyday Ethel Leginska was a multi-talented musician.


The first woman to ever conduct and compose her own opera.


As the first woman conductor, she packed out US concert halls -


30,000 people came to this venue - the Hollywood Bowl, to see her.


And she founded America's first women's orchestras.


But she was born in Hull as Ethel Liggins.


This was the first proper recital that she did when she was ten years


old. It is dated from 1897. Terry Broadbent spent decades


studying Leginska's life. Celebrated as Hull's little prodigy


- Ethel changed her name and moved to London,


then Europe, then America to train with the best and perform


to the biggest audiences. Until about 1930 she was regarded as


one of the top in the United States. It is such a shame that she dropped


out of history in the songs forgotten. When you came to look at


all other exploits is difficult to see why that was. But it was partly


antifemale prejudice. It was so difficult to get things put on.


Leginska's playing was captured on these reproducing piano rolls -


which recreate how she struck each note.


Now work's taking place at the University of Hull to be able


to play these recordings at concerts in March.


He lives this list of files. -- he lives this list.


Her piano rolls were recorded digitally -


The keys are not going down like they should.


So the University's technicians have re-programmed the keys


to be struck faster - to create a true Leginska experience


- without the drawbacks of using the original piano rolls.


In order to create the action this need for a better pump which sounds


a bit like an action cleaner. You're trying to fight against that. That


is also the sound of the paper as it rose to and that mechanical action


can grate a little bit and you get this rather squeaky scrapie sound


which sounds like the paper is going to tear.


Leginska's own compositions will also be perfomed at the concert -


hoping to reignite interest in an accomplished musician
