Featherstone: 'Catalogue of failures' over Baby P


Lynne Featherstone, Liberal Democrat candidate for Hornsey & Wood Green, has said it was right for Sharon Shoesmith to have lost her job after the death of Baby P.

Speaking after the High Court ruled that Ms Shoesmith was legitimately sacked, Ms Featherstone said: "Under her watch there was a catalogue of failures."

She added that Sharon Shoesmith's loyalty should have been towards child protection, not towards her department.
