Leader of Haringey Council Resigns

Following the publication of the report into the death of Baby P, George Meehan the leader of Haringey Council , and Liz Santry, cabinet member for children and young people have resigned. The report states that there was ‘insufficient strategic leadership and management oversight by elected leaders.’

Sharon Shoesmith, Head of Children’s Services has been sacked -no doubt there’ll be universal support of this decision. Ed Balls has appointed a new team to take over the authority’s children services. More on this later.
