Liam Culverhouse told doctors 'I may harm my child'

An ex-soldier jailed over the death of his 19-month-old daughter warned army doctors he was likely to harm his first child, an inquiry has found.

Liam Culverhouse, 25, was jailed for six years last month for causing or allowing the death of Khloe Abrams in Northampton.

A serious case review has found army doctors failed to share Culverhouse's warning with other agencies.

Healthcare staff also failed to spot injuries to Khloe, it found.

Northampton Crown Court heard Khloe was admitted to hospital in May 2011, a few months after his discharge.

She spent more than a year in hospital and was being cared for in a hospice when she died in November 2012 of pneumonia, brought on by injuries she suffered when she was seven weeks old.

She had suffered severe brain damage and fractures to her skull, ribs and limbs.
