An investigation into services given to vulnerable teenagers by a private company hired by Norfolk County Council will not be made public.
The council began a probe in March into services given to four teenagers after this newspaper published pictures showing shocking conditions young people were being put in by a company called Sixteen Plus.
The photos revealed badly damaged homes covered in rubbish where teenagers leaving the council's care were placed.
Sixteen Plus also said it would carry out its own investigation.
The council said its investigation was now complete and its report was being finalised.
A spokesman said because the report contained personal and confidential information it would not be fully published.

But they added recommendations from the report would go to the council's children's service's committee at a later date.
Former UKIP county councillor Jonathan Childs, who brought the concerns to the council's attention, said the report should still be published while protecting the identities of the teenagers.
