Quotes

"It is a very secretive practice, with many victims suffering in silence. We all - police, health and education services and councils - have a responsibility to bring this issue into the spotlight and protect vulnerable members of our communities."
"The police are looking at it and if they decide there is no case for corporate manslaughter, then they will hand it over to us.”"
"Unfortunately no witnesses to this assault have come forward and the victim came to on the grass verge alone, with no one around to check on his welfare."
"Our priority now is to support them, and Jason’s colleagues, at what is an extremely difficult time."
