Angela Cannings Foundation

The Angela Cannings Foundation website is now up and running though still in the building stage. There is an associated forum which is likely to make for lively reading, with Penny Mellor heavily involved. One case the team is tracking is the appeal of baby sitter Suzanne Holdsworth, who was convicted of the murder of a child in her care in 2005. BBC's Newsnight carried a feature on the appeal & the medical issues in which one of the officers who investigated the offence expresses concerns about the quality of the investigation, partly because important evidence about the child having a brain tumour was not put before the jury. The outcome of the appeal hearing is still awaited as judgment was reserved.
