More children will die because of cuts – Shoesmith

More vulnerable children will die at the hands of their “desperate” parents as a result of funding cuts, disgraced former Haringey children’s services boss Sharon Shoesmith has warned.

Ms Shoesmith, who lost her job after the Baby P tragedy, suggested that all the “good developments” in social care since then will be undone by a “dreadful” financial situation.

She issued the warning in her first national public speech since her dismissal in 2008. She also told the North of England Education Conference in Blackpool that she was still struggling to live with the death of Peter Connelly more than three years after he died.
