More than 150 of the worst cases of child abuse have come to light since theBaby P tragedy. http://uk.news.yahoo.com/4/20091018/tuk-child-abuse-cases-highlighted-dba1618.html

A survey shows in the past six months alone authorities launched nearly two investigations a week into the most worrying incidents, primarily thosewhere children died or were seriously injured as a result of abuse orneglect.

The national survey by the Press Association suggests there has been no fallin the number of children coming to harm since the death of Baby P - nownamed as Peter Connelly - in August 2007.Responding to the research, a social workers' leader warned that there were"Baby Peters in every local authority" and said the failings in the casecould be repeated in many other areas.A total of 348 "serious case reviews" have been launched since April 2006,one month after Peter was born.Results were taken from a survey of 120 councils in England.
