why a council is determined to catch Tomorrow, we will have some snow may

with dementia says proposed funding cuts to day services in Oxfordshire

:00:48.:00:48.

care or into hospital. Around 10,000 people

:00:52.:00:53.

in Oxfordshire have the condition. The council says most charities that

:00:54.:00:58.

support people in the community manage to operate with no

funding at all. 82-year-old Jenny has been

can enjoy themselves. In terms of mental health beds,

:02:14.:02:16.

since 2002 I think we've lost six out of the eight wards that used

to exist in Oxfordshire, there used to be seven day hospitals

:02:20.:02:22.

in Oxfordshire in 2002, there are now none and it doesn't

a red Mini Cooper. It was a very reckless

act to undertake. Obviously the ambulance

could have moved forward, the individual would have had no

proper control of that vehicle at the time and anything

:04:13.:04:15.

could have happened. It could have hit a pedestrian,
