Unexplained Fractures in Babies

B McKenzie made this Freedom of Information request to Nottinghamshire Police

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was refused by Nottinghamshire Police.

Dear Nottinghamshire Police,

Please could you provide all statistical data you hold, in relation to fractures in babies, going back from 2011 to whatever date is reasonable.

I am particularly interested in

1. The Local Authority Area
2. Name of the Hospital
3. Whether the Fractures had an organic explanation. (If so what was the cause eg. Brittle bones, Vitamin D deficiency etc)
4. Whether the Fractures were recorded as non accidental.
5. Whether a criminal trial ensued.
6. Whether the child was adopted.
7. Whether the child died from the injuries.

I appreciate that it may not be possible to provide all the above listed information however I would be grateful to receive whatever information you have available and signposting towards other organisations who may hold the relevant data.

Yours faithfully,

B McKenzie
