Hundreds of people packed into a community centre in Birmingham

:00:17.:00:19.

in the past few hours to discuss the so`called Trojan Horse `ffair.

:00:20.:00:22.

Five schools in the city have been put into special measures bx Ofsted

:00:23.:00:25.

amid allegations that Muslil hardliners were attempting to take

:00:26.:00:27.

Our Special Correspondent Pdter Wilson was at the meeting.

:00:28.:00:34.

They crowded into the main hall of what once was a Victorian school.

:00:35.:00:39.

Now a community centre, pardnts and teachers had come wanting to

:00:40.:00:44.

discover what they called the truth about the Trojan Horse schools.

:00:45.:00:54.

Our children go to the school and we don't see any evidence of this

:00:55.:01:02.

happening. It would have an impact on my children.

:01:03.:01:06.

The official government reports claim there's a culture of fear

:01:07.:01:09.

But tonight the Teachers? Union blamed the government

:01:10.:01:12.

If you promote this in a wax that paints an entire community `s

:01:13.:01:25.

extremists, where you appoint a head of terrorism to look into it, you'd

:01:26.:01:30.

create a damaging climate where parents no longer feel they can be

:01:31.:01:32.

part of the school communitx. The Police and Crime Commissioner

:01:33.:01:34.

was also at tonight's meeting. We don't see this as an isste. There

:01:35.:01:47.

are some devout people involved in religion but that is not a latter

:01:48.:01:49.

for the counterterrorism unht. But today the organiser of the

:01:50.:01:53.

meeting admitted to me that there are real problems with the schools

:01:54.:01:56.

targeted in the government reports. It is important the issues `re fixed

:01:57.:02:12.

fast. There was no Trojan horse pass and is no evidence of extrelism

:02:13.:02:14.

There was anger at times but this was not an angry mdeting,

:02:15.:02:17.

it was a community seeking `nswers and wanting its voice heard.

:02:18.:02:23.

People were angry at times. This was a debate and I spoke to sevdral

:02:24.:02:43.

people looking to get jobs hn some of these schools and they w`nted to

:02:44.:02:51.

know what it meant for them and their future. What do you think will

:02:52.:03:01.

be achieved? The government takes all of this seriously and wd are

:03:02.:03:06.

going to get at least two rdports at the end of the month. They `re

:03:07.:03:13.

playing a mature game. Yes, there are problems in these calls but we

:03:14.:03:18.

need a dialogue in order to find the best way to reach a solution and get

:03:19.:03:23.

away from the hardliners in the school but also the hard liners in

:03:24.:03:26.

the government is talking about extremism.

:03:27.:03:28.

The family of a teenage girl from Stourport who died thrde days

:03:29.:03:31.

after being discharged from hospital say they're angry they

:03:32.:03:34.

Amy Carter was admitted to Worcestershire Royal Hospit`l

:03:35.:03:36.

on December 19th 2009, and diagnosed with glandular fever.

:03:37.:03:40.

Two days later she was discharged, despite being unable to walk,

:03:41.:03:43.

On Christmas Eve she was rushed back to hospital where she died

:03:44.:03:49.

Her family say they fear the same tragedy could be rdpeated.

:03:50.:03:55.

Amy was a lively 15`year`old who loved fishing and the outdoors. Five

:03:56.:04:01.

years ago she became too we`k to walk, lost weight and developed a

:04:02.:04:05.

rash. On her second day in Worcestershire Royal Hospit`l, she

:04:06.:04:14.

asked a question. She said, "Am I going to die." They said shd was

:04:15.:04:19.

going to be poorly but she was going to be all right. The followhng day

:04:20.:04:40.

She was put on life support and had already had a heart attack.

:04:41.:04:45.

Amy died of blood poisoning and the family has received an out`of`court

:04:46.:04:49.

Had she remained in hospital, she would have received a course

:04:50.:04:53.

of antibiotics and it would have saved her life.

:04:54.:04:55.

We have had a statement frol the Chief Executive from the hospital

:04:56.:04:58.

and she expresses great sympathy and adds, following Amy's death, a full

:04:59.:05:01.

investigation was carried ott which found at all stages of her hospital

:05:02.:05:04.

The results of this investigation were shared with Mrs and Mrs Carter

:05:05.:05:08.

and they are pleased the legal claim has now been resolved.

:05:09.:05:11.

How can they have an intern`l investigation into themselvds?

:05:12.:05:19.

They want somebody who is ottside and has nothing to do with the NHS

:05:20.:05:23.

Somebody independent to makd them suffer and feel how we do now

:05:24.:05:28.

Somebody needs to pay for what they have done and I don't mean lonetary,

:05:29.:05:35.

I mean pay emotionally and physically the way we...

:05:36.:05:41.

A law graduate who falsely `ccused her boyfriend

:05:42.:05:51.

:05:52.:05:53.

30`year`old Rhiannon Brooker pretended that Paul Fensome,

:05:54.:05:59.

who's from Birmingham, assaulted her so she'd have

Sentencing her, the judge s`id what she had done was cold, calctlated,
