Abuse children slipping through net


More than half a million children are abused or neglected at home each year - but just one in nine are protected by local authorities, the NSPCC said. Services to protect children are improving but the charity warns they will only ever reach a fraction of the children who are abused. The scale of the problem is a key finding in the UK's first national child abuse tracker How Safe Are Our Children launched by the NSPCC.
