The death of a 17-month-old boy after months of abuse, despite him being on an at-risk register, has sparked an review of child protection in England, BBC reported.
It comes as two men were found guilty of causing his death in August 2007.
The boy, from Haringey, north London, suffered 50 injuries, and the case has revealed a series of failings by social workers, health workers and police.
The case is described as worse than that of Victoria Climbie, who was murdered in Haringey in 2000.
Lord Laming, who chaired the inquiry into eight-year-old Victoria's death, has now been asked to prepare "an independent report of progress made across the country".
He described the latest case as "dispiriting". I certainly want to investigate further the situation in Haringey
Children's Minister Beverly Hughes
"It would be awful wherever it happened, but it seems particularly sad that it has happened in the same area where Victoria experienced this awful cruelty and a terrible death and involved the very same services," he said.
The death of Victoria Climbie prompted a complete rethink about looking after vulnerable children.
In his report, Lord Laming found agencies were passing the buck and not communicating. He made various recommendations and demanded major legal and structural change.
