A two-year-old boy and his dad have been found dead at a property in Skegness, prompting a “rapid review”.
Bronson Battersby was found alone in the house with his 60-year-old dad, Kenneth Battersby, on 9 January.
It is thought the toddler, who has been described as the “light of his dad’s eye”, starved to death after Mr Battersby had a heart attack.
The family was known to children’s services and Lincolnshire County Council has launched a inquiry.
Its executive director of children services, Heather Sandy, described the deaths as “devastating” and “tragic”.
“Kenneth has passed away at his home,” she told BBC Radio 4’s World at One.
“He was at home on his own with Bronson and that meant that there was nobody left to give Bronson care, and sadly as a result of that, Bronson has also passed away.”
