Amina Agboola died from a ruptured liver as a result of blunt force trauma, an inquest heard.

The two-year-old died at 12.40pm on Thursday, November 21, following emergency surgery at Peterborough City Hospital.

Paramedics were called to her home in Scotts Drive, Yaxley, at 8.50am, where she was in the care of her mother Sarah Raqueman and her mother’s boyfriend Dean Harris, also of Scotts Drive.

Today (Wednesday), David Morris, coroner for South and West Cambridgeshire, opened an inquest into Amina’s death.

He said he ordered a post mortem examination, which was carried out at St Thomas’ Hospital in London by Professor R A Risdon later on November 21.
