Baby P\'s mother to remain in jail after losing parole board appeal

She was let out on licence in 2013 but was recalled to prison in 2015 for breaching her parole conditions

The mother of Baby P, who died after months of abuse, will remain behind bars after losing an appeal against a Parole Board decision not to release her.

Tracey Connelly, 38, was jailed at the Old Bailey in 2009 for causing or allowing the death of her 17-month-old son Peter at their home in Tottenham, north London, on August 3 2007.

Known publicly as Baby P, he had suffered more than 50 injuries – despite being on the at-risk register and receiving 60 visits from social workers, police and health professionals over eight months.

Connelly admitted the offence and was handed a sentence of imprisonment for public protection with a minimum term of five years.
