Coming up: The mother jailed for manslaughter after her baby

:00:00.:00:07.

A report says social workers couldn't have prevented the death.

:00:08.:00:16.

If there is one thing that we can do in her memory is to improve the

:00:17.:00:25.

services in a way that the independent authors have suggested

:00:26.:00:26.

that we should. Why pupils made a video about

:00:27.:00:28.

the dangers of sharing information. The death of a toddler -

:00:29.:00:34.

who was left in the bath by her mother - couldn't have been

prevented by social workers, The findings come despite social

who died in Grove in 2014. Jasmine Gregory, seen

here in the hooded coat, is serving a three year sentence

who drowned in the bath in Grove A serious case review investigated

whether professionals could have Today's report talks

could have saved Robyn - who is known as Child Q -

in the report. This is a tragic example

:01:48.:01:49.

where clearly opportunities were missed to safeguard Baby Q,

:01:50.:01:52.

and I think our view at the NSPCC is that there is further work that

:01:53.:01:56.

needs to be understood in relation to the complexities of neglect,

:01:57.:02:02.

and what needs to be done to ensure that children in the circumstances

are adequately safeguarded This family was known

to social workers. At one point the baby was taken

into emergency foster care. In another instance,

Robyn was strapped into her pram for a day while her mum

was at the pub. You must get a careful balance

between supporting the parent, where they are not appropriately

there was still more work to do. Police investigating the theft

to students here at St Helen We made this video to help you stay

pressures of our virtual world. One of the things that most

concerns me at the moment is around the use of things like texting

in Oxfordshire a boost. 2016 saw the highest sales

vinyl's never really gone out of fashion -

have fared so well. And for this distribution company

the digital age and streaming, many of the specialist record shops

like the artwork and the sleeve. Just listen to it, and the whole

concept of an album. I find with vinyl, it sounds so much

:08:39.:08:45.

better than downloads or CDs. When you buy limited edition ones,

:08:46.:08:52.

you open it up and you find out It is great just going

lot of club tonight, some clear spells here and there and the chance

:09:56.:09:59.

of patchy and light rain and drizzle, with thickening cloud. A

:10:00.:10:04.

lot of places stay dry during the early hours and temperatures fall

:10:05.:10:07.

away to seven or 8 degrees, a mild night to come. It will be a cloudy

:10:08.:10:13.

and dump start tomorrow, mist and fog clears. We expect sunny spells,

:10:14.:10:19.

isolated showers, dry weather and an increasing north-westerly breeze

:10:20.:10:23.

which will take the edge of temperatures. 10 degrees is the high

:10:24.:10:27.

but feeling more like seven or 8 degrees with the cold,

north-westerly breeze. All eyes are looking ahead to Thursday where

there is the potential for slow. Especially over the Cotswolds and

rain moving from west to east on Thursday daytime, it might produce

no even at lower levels. But we aren't expecting too much to settle,

:10:49.:10:53.

not a huge or significant amount of snowfall but stay tuned to the

:10:54.:10:58.

forecast. Looking ahead, tomorrow there's a cloudy start, bright

spells and the chance of patchy and light rain. A risk of snowfall on

weekend as well. For more on that snow situation, over to Jay Wynne
