The murder of a five-year-old boy has prompted a review into how the NHS, social services, police and schools share information.

It was one of the recommendations of the report into Logan Mwangi's death which ministers said will be adopted.

It comes as the government once again refused to set up a Wales-wide review of children's social services.

A review into Logan's murder said a series of failings meant chances to safeguard the schoolboy were missed.

Logan, from Sarn, Bridgend county, was murdered by his mother, stepfather and a teenager in July 2021.

His mother, Angharad Williamson, is serving at least 28 years in jail for the murder, in July 2021.

'Absolutely crucial'

His stepfather John Cole, 40, must serve at least 29 years while Craig Mulligan, 14, was given a sentence of at least 15 years.

Deputy Social Services Minister Julie Morgan said: Information sharing is absolutely crucial, because the agencies that work in child protection are many, and it's absolutely crucial they share their information.
