He said he would write to the landlord of the property in Lindsay Mount, in the Burmantofts area, and recommend they look into fitting all windows with static inhibitors to prevent them opening too wide.
He also said he would recommend regular inspections of the properties to ensure safety features are in place and working.Why not just suggest that stupid, irresponsible, caring-only-for-their-own-pleasures parents be prevented from breeding in the first place, David?
Wouldn't that actually do more damn good?
The inquest heard that Liam, with his mother, father and siblings, had been living in his grandfather’s one-bedroom flat for three weeks while they waited to be rehoused.
On the day of Liam’s death, on May 31, the family were in the bedroom of the flat for around three hours while workers replaced carpet tiles in the living room.
Mr Hinchliff said the window in the bedroom was opened as the room became 'very warm and stuffy' and the adults were smoking.I'm surprised that little fact didn't bring the anti-smoking zealots out like a pack of ravenous hounds...
Any chance of a prosecution of those responsible for his safety?
Mrs Shackleton, Liam's grandfather Peter Shackleton, another relative, Shaun Shackleton, and Mrs Shackleton's friend were all arrested on suspicion of child neglect.
Liam's father was also arrested at a later date.
No charges were brought against any of those arrested.*sigh*
Mrs Shackleton, 29, who broke down in tears during the inquest, issued a poem she wrote about Liam in which she described how she missed her "precious son".
She wrote: "Words cannot describe the sadness this brings or how very dearly you are missed. Knowing that you are no longer here is very painful indeed. An emptiness now exists which only you once filled.
"You were a wonderful son, you gave me so much joy, you would make any parent proud."She ought to do ten years for that alone.
