An independent review is under way into how Haringey social services dealt with the case of a raped two-year-old girl.

The girl, now 4, was also on the council's register for at-risk children.

Her abuser, the boyfriend of Baby P's mother, was found guilty of the crime at the Old Bailey on Friday.

The review will be conducted by Graham Badman, the chairman of the Haringey Local Safeguarding Children Board.

Mr Badman also carried out a second investigation into the death of Baby P, who we now know was named Peter.

Details of that report will be published this summer.

Mr Badman said: "I have received legal advice that precludes publication of the summary at the present time but I am keen to place this document in the public domain as rapidly as possible and propose to publish it as soon as it is legally permissible to do so."

The report will outline that Peter's death could have been prevented.

"If doctors, lawyers, police and social workers had adopted a more urgent, thorough and challenging approach, the case would have been stopped in its tracks at the first serious incident.

"Baby P deserved better from the services that were there to protect him," Mr Badman said.

Council leader Claire Kober admitted failings had been made in the handling of the toddler's case.

Ms Kober said: "There were opportunities to intervene to help the children in this family between December 2006 and August 2007, which should have been taken. There were failures of judgement, professional practice, management and supervision as well as record-keeping and the sharing of information.

"Regrettably there was also a failure to look honestly at what went wrong, and what needed to change."

She said she had personally apologised to Peter's father and that Haringey Council was determined to "get things right" in future.
