Responding to the multi-agency report, published by Doncaster NHS, into the care provided to Hannah Bonser who tragically killed schoolgirl, Casey Kearney, Caroline Flint said:
“Hannah Bonser clearly had a deeply troubled childhood. And whilst the courts clearly found her responsible for her own actions in murdering Casey Kearney, the frequent contact Hannah Bonser had with local agencies in the last few years begs questions about the services and support provided to her. The responsibility is now on the various agencies to show they have fully understood what more could have been and should be done for children and young people like Hannah to help prevent future tragedies."
On 14 February 2012, Hannah Bonsor stabbed schoolgirl Casey Kearney, a complete stranger, with a kitchen knife. The report states in the conslusion:
"It is important to note that it was the actions of Miss G that led to the tragic death of Child A and that at her trial she was found guilty of murder and not manslaughter as a result of diminished responsibility."
