It was not appropriate to extend an inquest into the death of a child to the role played by the statutory child protection agencies in relation to the child's life, since the trigger for the investigative duty under the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 Art.2 had not been activated. There was no evidence to justify a conclusion that the statutory child protection agencies knew or ought to have known of a real and immediate risk to the child's life.
