The killers, who posed for Snapchat selfies while putting Angela Wrightson through a five-hour ordeal, were already known to social services for absconding, drinking and being sexually active, a review of the case has found.

Hartlepool Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) and the Teeswide Safeguarding Adults Board carried out reviews into what happened. Reports concluded the murder could not have been prevented and that all parties, including Ms Wrightson, who was known locally as Alco Ange, had received a high level of intervention from social services.

One of the last images of Angela Wrightson before she was murdered has been released by police. Gerry Wareham, of the Crown Prosecution Service, said: "In our society it is hard to imagine that two girls of such a young age could be capable of such violence.

The older girl, given the pseudonym Olivia in the report, was living in a care home at the time and had a chaotic family life.

At a news conference, Dave Pickard chair of the LSCB, said staff were not allowed to lock doors to stop her from running away.

“As a parent, in your own home, you could probably within reason, stop a child leaving,” he said. “Guidance in children’s homes is different, so you try to alter the behaviour of the child, to prevent them from doing so.”

Mr Pickard said the girls’ parents blamed the teenagers for their bad behaviour prior to the murder, during discussions with social workers rather than accepting any failures in how they had brought up their daughters.

“They (the girls) had experienced abuse and neglect and they were traumatised,” he said.

Olivia’s anger had been picked up by professionals and she had been due to visit a forensic psychiatrist on the day she was arrested.

Angela Wrightson was murdered in her own home (Picture: SWNS). Gerry Wareham, of the Crown Prosecution Service, spoke of the lack of remorse shown by the girls after the murder and said he hoped Miss Wrightson ’s family could now move on.

As far back as August 2012, while she was living with her mother, a social worker found the parent in a distressed state, claiming “Olivia was drinking, going to parties, possibly having sexual intercourse and hitting” younger siblings.

Two months before the murder, she was arrested for assaulting three members of staff and causing damage to the premises.

The younger girl, given the name Yasmine in the official reports, had been put in foster care after her parents complained of being unable to cope. The report stated: “She was known to drink alcohol and use drugs, and there were escalating concerns regarding possible underage sexual activity.”

Mr Pickard said: “Their behaviour was troublesome and anti-social before the night in question, but there was no suggestion whatsoever of any serious violence: it was a total shock to everyone.”

Miss Wrightson, who was 5ft 4in and weighed six-and-a-half stone, was found dead in her blood-spattered living room in December 2014 after a five-hour long ordeal.

A selfie posted to Snapchat showed the defendants smiling with Miss Wrightson pictured in the background shortly before her death, with further selfies showing the girls drinking cider from a bottle.
