A protest on child abuse in Coventry which was fronted by a Nelson woman on Friday attracted widespread media coverage in the West Midlands.
As we reported last week, Nicci Astin, of Hawarden Street, was heading a protest for Daniel Pelka, a four-year-old boy from the city who died in March last year after being starved and beaten by his mother and her partner.
More than 50 people attended the protest and newspapers, television and radio from the area all covered the event.
A petition raised on the issue which will be sent to Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and Lord Chancellor Chris Grayling has already been signed by more than 62,800 people.
Nicci said: “The day went really well.
“It was very productive and we attracted lots of questions from passers-by.
“There is lots more to do but it was worth every minute.
“The aim of the petition is to change the law so that there is a legal obligation for adults in responsible positions to help children who are clearly in distress, as is the case in many other countries.”
