Hurricane Jose: A class 2 hurricane hits just after Irma

Barbuda was hit so hardly by Irma; hitting over 90% of her structures, yet a much stronger Jose has been said to have approached the Atlantic. There is news on a further hurricane in Barbuda and Antigua; two countries that have just been recently hit by Irma.

A 21 months old girl murdered by her mother: Ayeeshia-Jayne Smith was stamped to death by her mother

A mother and a killer: Ayeeshia's mother killed her in cold blood

A 23 years old mother who killed her own toddler was jailed last year. Another serious Case Review where agencies have failed a child in every way. This case review published today 5th Sept, has again reminded the social services of the poor practice revolving within Children Services. It must be highlighted that the child's needs must be paramount in every practice and professionals must not over emphasize on the needs of the parents or carer. but must unpick incidents and information shared and how they were shared.

There is a great need to work together and on time information sharing to be put in practice. Derbyshire County promises to make changes and to improve safeguarding. I would say staff need to trained and tested for compliance to practice.

Medical incidents and previously recorded injuries were omitted, therefore leading to prolonged abuse and lack of safeguarding and protection. 

Ayeeshia's injuries were described by doctors to be similar to those found on car accident victims. How badly could have the life of this young girl been before her death? What is the excuse? how was this level of abuse missed?

Although Kathryn was jailed for life, Ayeeshia's death still remains a sad story in our hearts

Broadstairs Cafe owner defrauds council of council property and disability benefit worth up to £152,000

The UK tries its best to ensure that disabled residents get the support they need. This is a fact. However, some ungrateful, greedy people have chosen to make this good gesture seem unreasonable after all. 
How could a healthy woman and her husband, adamantly continue to receive support that is meant for people with actual disability. Claiming to be severely disabled, Mrs. White received over £150,000 from Government Funds.

Through surveillance, The Fraud Team was able to identify Mrs. White's double life and with all evidence gathered, arrested for benefit fraud of £152,000. However, BBC documentation stated that Mrs. White had shown no remorse towards her actions.
Mrs. White, a 56 years old woman who claim disability allowance and living a posh council property in Etham- Greenwich Council, claimed it to be her only property but her husband had given his address as Broadstairs, which was found unrealistic considering the distance to Etham and he being the only carer for a severely disabled wife.
