A report from the force watchdog has criticised Northamptonshire Police for failing to act over a dangerous dog which went on to kill a baby.
Molly Mae Wotherspoon’s mother and hgrandmother were jailed yesterday.
The IPCC says an officer was told there were concerns about the American Pit Bull – ten months before the tragedy – but failed to ensure the information was acted on.
The officer consequently received management action from the force.
Another officer who also allegedly failed to act on the intelligence received was found to have no case to answer.
