Khyra Ishaq review reveals how mother intimidated professionals

Angela Gordon threatened violence and legal action, and accused staff of racism or harassment

Attempts by teachers, police and social workers to investigate suspicions that Khyra Ishaq and other children in the care of Angela Gordon and her partner were suffering neglect and abuse were thwarted by a sustained campaign of intimidation and lack of co-operation by Gordon, the serious case review revealed.

Gordon, 35, proved extraordinarily adept at swatting aside attempts by professionals to intervene in her chaotic family life. At times she would threaten physical violence, at other times threaten legal action, or accuse them of racism or harassment. She ruthlessly exploited safeguarders' ignorance of the law on home schooling and kept them constantly on the back foot.

Gordon restricted access to her children, removing them from school at a time when official concerns about their wellbeing started to emerge. A succession of police officers and social workers who visited the family to make assessments would often be kept waiting on the doorstep, refused access to the home and prevented from seeing the children.
