The case of Baby P has shocked the whole country, with many questioning how three people could torture a 17-month baby to death.
He spent months being subjected to violent assaults which left him with a broken back and numerous other injuries.
In the weeks after his death Cafcass, the body that looks after children in court proceedings, has recorded a sharp rise in local authorities applying for court orders to take children into care.
In Harrow the children's services department has had a relatively good record, but social workers, the police and healthcare officials seem to be aware that a case like Baby P could happen anywhere.
Director of children's services Paul Clark and his team are absolutely committed to child welfare and on page five we hope to explain a little more of how Harrow protects the borough's minors.
Speak up on political ideas
WE KNOW how many BNP members there are in Harrow and who they are.
But a court injunction prevents any media from reporting them unless they agree to talk.
We rang them and one did. However objectionable their views, the BNP is not a banned group and its members deserve not to be harassed.
But what does it say about a group when just one of the 60-odd BNP Harrovians is prepared to defend their beliefs in public?
