    The company which sacked two groundsmen from the KCOM stadium have responded to criticism over their decision.

    Darrell Cook and Mark Harrison worked as groundsmen for almost 30 years

    Darrell Cook and Mark Harrison worked as groundsmen for almost 30 years until they were told to leave.

    In a statement SMC Management, their employer, said following an investigation both were dismissed for gross misconduct and a fundamental breach of the implied term of mutual trust and confidence.

    Quote Message: We are confident that a fair and robust process was adopted and that any claim brought by either Mr Harrison or Mr Cook will be successfully defended. from SMC Management
    SMC Management

    Both Mr Cook and Mr Harrison have denied any wrongdoing and are crowdfunding in order to take legal action.

    Quote Message: I know there's no name to be cleared, but people out there don't. When you're sacked for gross misconduct it's not good. Certainly there's none of that in our case and we want to put that fact right. from Mark Harrison

    A serious case review into the death of a four-week-old baby in Hull has revealed his dad committed a campaign of domestic abuse against his mother before the killing.

    Tommy Lee Laverack Whitworth died in 2014

    Tommy Lee Laverack Whitworth died in 2014 after he was violently shaken by his father, Liam Laverack, suffering catastrophic injuries.

    The report by the Hull Safeguarding Children's Board reveals social workers knew about the incidents before the event which led to Tommy Lee's death but they stopped working with the family because they were satisfied with child's safety.

    The chair of the board says the death of the baby could not have been foreseen and says the case has highlighted the need for agencies to improve early help sharing of information and pre-birth assessments.

    Hull City were relegated from the Premier League after they were beaten 4-0 by Crystal Palace at the weekend.
