Review into events leading to 11-month-old's murder to be made public
Emma Wilson - convicted of murdering her son Callum

An independent review into events leading to the death of Callum Wilson will be made public early next year.

The 11-month-old's mother Emma Wilson, from Windsor, was convicted of his murder on Friday at the Old Bailey. He suffered 'unsurvivable brain injuries' from an impact to his head, the court heard.

The review is being carried out by the Royal Borough's Local Safeguarding Children Board.

Each area nationally has its own board. They are known as LSCBs and were established by the 2004 Children's Act to operate independently of their local authority.

The Royal Borough's LSCB has representatives from the council, Thames Valley Police, the area's schools, colleges, the probation service, healthcare trusts and clinical commissioning groups on it.

This week the borough put out a statement, saying: "We are deeply saddened by the tragic death of little Callum and our sympathy is with those who loved and cared for him during his short life."

It said the independent review would be shared with the public early in 2014, stating: "Although the trial has come to a conclusion it would be inappropriate for us to comment until the report is published."

The infant, who also suffered rib, arm and leg fractures and bruising across his face and body, died in March 2011.

Wilson will be sentenced at the Old Bailey on 24 January.
