Poppi Worthington and her father Paul Worthington.
Poppi Worthington is from Barrow-in-Furness.
There was a cover-up of her sexual abuse and death.
The BAE Systems Maritime – Submarines shipyard at Barrow-in-Furness is the largest in the UK and builds Trident submarines.
The death of 13-month-old Poppi Worthington (above), in Cumbria in the UK, may be linked to a well protected child abuse ring.
There was a suspected cover-up by the authorities.
The Crown Prosecution Service decided not to press charges against anyone.
Paul Worthington remains a free man.
A judge ruled that Poppi was sexually assaulted by her father, Paul Worthington, (above) and this led to her death in December 2012
In 1995, Paul Worthington was interviewed by the police, following an ‘association with someone who may have committed offences against children’.
In 2003, an unrelated allegation was made by his then stepson.
After Poppi’s death, the police appeared to be trying not to collect any forensic evidence.
Virtually nothing was done to protect Poppi’s three sisters and two brothers after Poppi’s death.
In March 2014, a two-week fact-finding hearing was held at the High Court in London.
Justice Peter Jackson found in his judgment that Poppi died as a result of a penetrative assault inflicted upon her by her father.
The judge criticised police, social workers and the coroner.
However, the ruling was kept secret.
Cumbria County Council applied to the judge for a secrecy order to keep all facts about the death suppressed for 15 years.

Lianne Smith and her daughter.

In 2013, a court in England heard that Steven Grieveson was gang raped in his youth and became a rent-boy.
There is a suspicion that Grieveson may be linked to some powerful and important people
In 1996, Grieveson was convicted of murdering Thomas Kelly, 18, David Hanson, 15, and David Grieff,15, in 1993 and 1994.
Initially, the police claimed that the deaths of these three boys were ‘drugs’ accidents.
Headteacher Jim Farnie, said the “vast majority” of people felt there was something “a lot more sinister” going on and their deaths were too much of a “coincidence” to be accidental.
It was eight months before the case was reviewed and it thenemerged that all three boys had been strangled.
“Mistakes in the initial investigation into Simon’s death included a pathologist failing to spot strangulation marks on the teenager’s neck and their theory that he had died within 48 hours of his body being discovered when in fact he had been dead for a week.
“Police also did not consider it might have been a sexual assault.
“Northumbria Police interviewed Grieveson, who had 12 criminal convictions at that point, three days after Simon’s body was found because the pair had been seen together.
“Grieveson told them he had never been inside Gillside House and they took him at his word.
“In 2000 a sample of DNA found at the scene underneath Simon’s body was sent for analysis as part of a case review and matched to Grieveson.
He was subsequently arrested but not charged as the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said there was ‘insufficient evidence’.
He was only charged with Simon’s murder in 2012.
Steven Grieveson was convicted of the murders of the four teenage boys in the city of Sunderland from 1993 to 1994.
