London Fire Brigade (LFB) has been condemned for “serious shortcomings” and systemic failures in its response to the Grenfell Tower fire, in a report after the first phase of an inquiry.
Ms Allen, 44, said she had suffered “utterly dehumanising” abuse and was “exhausted” by the “nastiness and intimidation” she had faced.
A wealthy Catholic religious order of men is being urged to settle damages claims brought by victims of abuse at five of its children’s homes in Scotland before they die. The call came after it emerged the De La Salle order, some of whose monks were convicted in court of sexual and physical abuse, is now pursing former volunteer managers of schools, claiming they should also be liable for funding the compensation payments.
The first rule of PR is not to become the story. So hardly a sparkling start to a new career for former Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson who was slaughtered by even her cosiest journalist chums for taking up a £50,000 post with lobbying firm Tulchan Communications while still drawing a £65,000 MSP salary.
