Just watched this shocking, disturbing but VERY important documentary on @netflix @netflixuk @netflixfilm @netflixca about the horrific child abuse and eventual murder case of 8 yr old Gabriel Fernandez.
Titled The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez, the series looks at the abuse Gabriel endured and the government systems that failed to protect him.
Info for UK viewers:
If you think a child might be being abused but they haven't said anything to you, there are things you can do which can help.
Report child abuse:
If you’re worried that a child or young person is at risk or is being abused contact the children’s social care team at their local council.
You’ll be asked for your details, but you can choose not to share them.
Call 999 if the child is at immediate risk, or call the police on 101 if you think a crime has been committed.
What to report:
Child abuse includes physical, sexual and emotional abuse, and neglect. You can read more about the signs of child abuse.
You don’t need to be sure that a child or young person has been abused - it’s OK to report a suspicion.
What happens when you report it:
The person who answers your call will decide what to do. For example, they might:

The children’s social care team will tell you what happens next, but they won’t be able to give you any confidential information.
