4-year-old Daniel Pelka starved to death by his mum and stepdad

Daniel’s teacher Lisa Godfrey  Told that in the days before his death he was so thin he looked like a “cancer victim”.
The boy’s mum Magdelena Luczak, 27, and her partner Mariusz Krezolek, 33, are on trial accused of murdering him.

Fighting back tears as she gave evidence today, Ms Godfrey said: “I was concerned about how he was getting the food, he was very sneaky.
"If he was caught he wouldn’t fight, he just gave up the food.
“He never acted as if he was being naughty, he just seemed desperate. But he was still losing a lot of weight.
"By the last week of his life if you put a hand on him, he looked like he was suffering from leukaemia...
"His skin was almost see-through and his eyes were almost sunken into his head.”

Baby P who was allegedly starved to death by his mum and step-dad had been so hungry that he scavenged leftovers from the compost bin at school, a court heard today.

Jurors were told emaciated four-year-old Daniel Pelka wolfed down half-eaten fruit from the containers and frequently stole packed lunches from other pupils.
