Abstract

Following the significant media coverage of the death of Peter Connelly (Baby P, Baby Peter) in August 2007, this study explored the relationship between the media, public pressure and policy making. It used newspaper reporting of the death of Baby Peter as a case study to explore the extent to which UK media coverage has influenced policy on child death cases due to abuse and neglect.
