The aunt and grandmother of a seven-year-old girl who died of a brain injury have been jailed for what a judge described as “just about the worst case of child cruelty it is possible to imagine”.

Shanay Walker was found dead at a house in Nottingham in July 2014 while in the care of her aunt Kay-Ann Morris, 24. She had suffered more than 50 injuries.
