Sharon Shoesmith was dismissed without compensation from her £110,000 position in December after a damning report into her department's failings.

Seventeen-month-old Baby P died after suffering more than 50 injuries despite being under council supervision.

The inspectors identified a string of "serious concerns" about Haringey's child protection services, which they described as "inadequate".

Ms Shoesmith lost an internal appeal against her dismissal in January.

She lodged a claim against the local authority with the Watford employment tribunal on Friday.

Employment law experts say Ms Shoesmith could receive a payout of up to £173,000 if she can prove that the council was wrong to sack her.....
