Council inquiry into murdered girl’s care

    Camden social services are carrying out a serious case review into
    the death of a six-year-old girl who was on its child protection
    register.

    Police have launched a murder inquiry after Ukleigha
    Batten-Froggatt and her mother, Nicole Batten, were found dead at
    their home last week.

    Police forced their way into their flat following concerns that
    Ukleigha had not been to school since late February. They
    discovered her body and her mother’s. Post-mortems revealed Batten
    had died from a single stab wound and Ukleigha had been strangled.
    Police have since arrested Batten’s partner on suspicion of their
    murder.
