Some faith schools are failing children

Nine private faith schools, out of a group of 22 inspected nationwide, have been found to be 'inadequate' by Ofsted.

Pupils at a Christian School in Epsom, Cornerstone, were not taught to understand different faiths, cultures and beliefs.

The watchdog said just five are rated as 'good' or better.

Sutton tests its emergency response

The borough's emergency procedures were tested to the extreme in a simulated terrorist attack last Wednesday.

By pure chance the Sutton emergency response exercise, which had been planned for several months, came just five days after the terrorist attacks in Paris.

The Sutton scenario was a huge explosion outside a busy train station in the borough causing significant loss of life and serious injuries as well as considerable damage to buildings.

The borough's response was co-ordinated and controlled by a number of representatives from different organisations including Met Police and Sutton Council from the Borough's Emergency Control Centre set up at Sutton Police Station.

As part of the exercise, a survivor reception centre was also set up at Sutton Life Centre to look after the 'uninjured survivors' - many of whom were suffering from shock and trauma and had been subject to a white dust residue which had contaminated the air following the explosion.

To assist, London Fire Brigade set up their decontamination tent in the car park at the rear of the Life Centre where survivors wearing white suits went through a decontamination process.

More than 75 members of the public had volunteered to be uninjured survivors.

Mother who smothered her children in New Malden had already been seen by professionals

A serious case review has found a depressed mother who smothered her three young disabled children was seen by dozens of different professionals.

It's described the involvement of so many people in Tania Clarence's case as an "insurmountable problem".

Mrs Clarence, of Thetford Road dmitted the manslaughter of her three-year-old twins Max and Ben and four year old daughter Olivia.

The review showed that professionals recognised as early as 2010 that she was probably depressed.

Richard Egan is the family's solictor. Here he refers to the Clarence family as the "A Family."

Tania’s husband Gary says she dedicated her life to caring for their children.

Serious Case Review has recommended:

◾Child-In-Need planning, involving multiple agencies, needs to be led by a social worker and not a health worker
◾Parents should routinely be offered counselling and support information whenever a child is diagnosed with a disability
◾Health practitioners should explore parents' cultural background and their attitudes towards council services
◾A system to ensure all case workers feel able to escalate concerns
◾A clear system to flag up child protection referrals and ensure referral recommendations do not get lost when information is shared by different agencies

Leader of Hounslow council issues statement following "dirty protest."

A number of residents in Hounslow barricaded the council leader in his home last week.

They blockaded his home in Brentford with wheelie bins.

Steve Curran returned from a council meeting to find protesters outside his home, which was surrounded by dozens of wheelie bins.

The demonstration was in response to council plans to introduce the bins to cut costs and increase recycling.

Some residents claim the bins are unsightly and pose a potential health and safety risk and they were not properly consulted over the move.

Labour council leader Mr Curran, called police when he could not get into his home prompting the protesters to abandon the demonstration.

He refused our request for an interview, but issued this statement.

I returned home in the evening to find people protesting against the roll out of the new wheelie bins and blocking access in and out of my house using dozens of wheelie bins. There were between 20—25 people waiting for me to come home and I have no qualms about saying I was very concerned by their presence and behaviour; and disappointed that they had chosen to make their feelings known in this way. I had no option but to call the police as I was being harassed and felt threatened.

I firmly believe in the right to protest and I know people feel very strongly, both for and against the introduction of wheelie bins, but there are appropriate ways to make your feelings known.

As Leader of Hounslow Council, I take full responsibility for the decisions we take, but it’s simply not appropriate for a crowd of people to heckle and barrack me at night, outside the home which I share with my family. Nor is it right to prevent access in and out of my house with wheelie bins. Protesting outside my house is also not fair to my neighbours.

I had no option but to call the police as I was being harassed and felt threatened.

Wisley Airfield development
Guildford Council have delayed a decision on plans to build over 2,000 homes on the site of Wisley Airfield at the junction of the M25 and M3 motorways.

The buildings on the site were removed and land sold back to its former owner for agricultural use, now just the runway’s left.

Developers Wisley Property Investments hope to build homes, shops, a school, health centre and sports pitch on the site.

A decision had been expected by 24 December but Guildford councillor Tony Rooth said more information was needed and the date was "now unlikely"
