Authorities 'failed to stop' nursery rapist Paul Wilson

An independent review has blamed Ofsted inspectors and council workers for failing to investigate concerns that had been raised by other staff at the Little Stars nursery in Birmingham.

Paul Wilson was jailed for life in 2011, after pleading guilty to 47 sexual offences, including the rape of a girl at Little Stars Nursery in Nechells, Birmingham.

The actions of Wilson, were allowed to continue because of poor nursery management and failings in inquiries by authorities.

As well as the management failings, the serious case review found "interacting factors" on the part of Ofsted and the local authority to investigate properly worries about Wilson's behaviour.

Daniela Relph reports.
