Children in Oxford are being told to stay in groups with their friends after a teenage girl was attacked.
Trust Admits Responsibility For Oxon Teen's Death
A health trust has admitted it was responsible for the death of a teenager who drowned in a bath.
Connor Sparrowhawk died after an epileptic seizure at the Slade House care home in Headington in Oxfordshire in 2013.
The Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust has awarded the 18-year-old's family, £80,000.
Connor's Mum, Dr Sara Ryan has said: "The statement is very clear and, given everything that’s happened (he died ...) is a form of ‘vindication’, if that’s the right word, without meaningless apology. The money? It was never about money. A good outcome apparently. I just felt deeply sad and a bit odd."
The family's solictor, Charlotte Haworth Hird, said: "This full admission finally shows what Connor’s family have known for years – that Connor and they were repeatedly failed by Southern Health. It comes after a three-year struggle by Connor’s family and the #JusticeforLB campaign.
"They have fearlessly fought for truth and accountability in relation to Connor’s death and at last, the full extent of the trust’s failings in Connor’s care have been accepted. It is shameful that this was not done sooner."
Campaigners will have the chance to hear more from the Oxford University Hospitals Trust tonight.
