The IPCC report revealed that Mrs Birch called Kent Police just hours before she was killed to report that her husband was hiding in her back garden. However her call was improperly logged. Later that day Birch attacked his wife while she was walking her dogs and strangled her to death.

The report found officers "failed to identify or investigate potential offences" including "harassment and making threats to kill" there also seemed to be a lack of understanding about protection orders amongst some of the Police staff and officers.
