Hello I'm Sally Taylor. so it's goodbye from me,


Tonight in South Today - two tragic stories which at their


heart have mental health trtsts failing


Southern Health is accused of failing a mother


who killed herself after thd death of her son who had


Upset and angry. Because it makes you got over it 100 times again and


again, thinking what could H have done differently?


And in Sussex, Susan Goswell's death was predictable, says a report.


Her husband killed her after making threats for ye`rs.


If they predicted it, they could have prevented it. I think ly


mother's life, there was no question that was the case. We go back on a


journey through 150 million years in a new museum dedicated to one man's


passion for marine fossils. I'm sharing it with everyone in the nice


thing is they don't live so I'm hopefully safeguarding it for the


future as well. "She couldn't continue

in the inquest of Karin Cheshire, a Southampton mother who colmitted


suicide nearly a year to the day after her only son


also took his own life. Jay Cheshire was 17


when he was investigated An allegation that

of losing a child was something A mother of two, who'd grown


to become the closest She was the best mum,


so loving, the three of us In July this year, at the Cheshire's


family home in Bitterne, The inquest heard today how Karin


had suffered a "mental breakdown" following the death of her son


and had been in and out of psychiatric units run


by the Southern Health Trust on five occasions over


a period of six months. The Trust was criticised


by the coroner for failing to pick up suicidal tendencies just three


days before hanging herself. It was the second tragic ch`pter


in the saddest of stories. Almost a year before


Karin took her own life, her son Jay had committed sticide


here in Riverside Park. At the age of just 17, Jay,


who had a history of depression had been the subject of a police


investigation into an allegdd rape. An investigation that was dropped


due to a lack of evidence, and after police say the alleged


victim decided against Jay's own inquest heard it had


a "profound effect on his My mum and my brother used the same


probe. My mum after receiving that back from the police, actually used


the same rope. That is something that is good to stick with le for


the rest of my life. I have very little family, and I'm just so


angry. It is the law that alleged victims


of sexual assault should maintain anonymity -


whether the investigation ends up in court or not, unless thex choose


to waive their right. My brother is gone and my mtm is


gone, that is to lives lost, because of a certain situation.


Jay, who was described in court as a "sensitive young man" had left


personal notes and had also written his own


Today the coroner said that Karin was a "special person"


It wasn't that she loves me any more or less, I know that, it was that


she couldn't live with what had happened to my brother, she couldn't


live without one of her children. The Southern Health Trust apologised


to her remaining family for their failure to recognhse

murdered his mother. Roger Goswell, who had


mental health problems, stabbed his wife Susan at their home


in West Chiltington in 2007 A review into TEN killings hnvolving


patients in the care of the Sussex Partnership NHS


Foundation Trust revealed that Joe Goswell says he's stunndd


by the report's findings which also found that


risks posed by patients werd not Information from family and carers


was not used effectively. And some of the Trust's staff


did not understand the extent of their powers under


the Mental Health Act. We'll be exploring the issuds it


raises in just a moment. Nine years ago, Roger Goswell used


a kitchen knife and a mallet to kill his wife Susan at their home


in West Chiltington - He'd been receiving mental health


treatment for a number of ydars - but hadn't been sectioned,


despite his wife telling If they predicted it, then they


could have prevented it. I think my mother 's love, no question that was


the case, could have saved ht they have a duty of care, and as a duty


of care, they should have m`de sure they prevented my mother 's death.


Today's report examined the Goswell case -


and nine others involving p`tients under the care of Sussex Partnership


The trust launched the revidw after Matthew Daley killed


Donald Lock on the A24 in Findon last year.


The 79-year-old great-grandfather, was stabbed 39 times by Daldy

like the Goswells - that in the future


they will be listened to and more involved in the care


of their relatives. Marjorie Wallace is from


the Mental Health charity [email protected] First of all, the Sussex mental


health trust, they have apologised, put their hands up to it, they have


said lessons will be learned but is that enough? No it isn't. This is an


indictment of the failure to protect the lives of both patients, the


families and the public. We have heard some of the failings,


including not enough adequate risk assessments, poor staff trahning,


they seem to be fundamental. How soon should we be and how concerned


are you? Very concerned. We have listened to these enquiries and gone


to over 100 of them, and thd same failings are reported. It doesn t


take huge resources to listdn to the families can stop if they lhsten to


the father of Matthew Daly, for ten years he had been telling them that


his son suffered from schizophrenia, hearing voices, and that he can be


violent. And they refused to take it warning seriously. It's the same


time and again. When we did an enquiry at SANE, we did a whole


analysis, etc one in two of the patient homicide cases had been


identified as a failure to listen to families and people close to that


patient. Patients need confhdence in mental health trusts, the ptblic


need confidence as well. Is there just too much reliance on c`re in


the community, in other words potential dangerous patients are


allowed out? I think the problem is that with the community card policy,


people, however disturbed, `re living in the community, but instead


of being under strict supervision, they are under community te`ms and


there been a lot of criticism of these teams, they have been cuts


made, they are overstretched, they often don't turn up. There hs not


one consistent person, which everybody wants and needs, who knows


the history, and again and `gain they failed to include the families.


Great to talk to you, thank you for speaking to us.

the local council 's actions as to 1600 people people signing one


residents petition of support. We don't want any further delaxs. We


have a derelict building in Farnham, we want to regenerate its and we


want people to come here and enjoy it, and Brightwells is the way


forward. Opponents say they are the stamping block. The only thhng that


is standing in the way is that our council, Waverley, cannot obtain


commercial funding and 14 ydars it has failed to do so. One of the


reasons it has failed to do so is that shopping is changing, `nd there


is a lot of shopping in this development, a lot of retail. Clicks

debate you have debate on both sides, particularly online where


things become more vocal, pdrm may be offensive on both sides. One side


thing both sides agree on is that Farnham is losing out.

likely to be able to attract them to employment in the future.


Bournemouth and Poole's Dightal economy has been run over stccess


but sustaining that growth `nd filling empty positions has been a


challenge. There is a big shortage of talent out there, the cldarly in


digital roles, there is an `mazing amount of momentum and noisd


happening about this area, we are all very excited about that, and one


of the key challenges is to maintain that. The that 1000 14 to 18 year

digital skills is increasing. I would be surprised there was in an


organisation or agency that doesn't have vacancies. There are always


jobs on offer. Industry leaders want to engage this generation now, the


next wave of talent who instinctively understand technology


better than anyone else. Wh`t they're looking for is much more to


do with fitting in with the company culture then it is to do a


particular convocations, although incredibly important to start off,


to engage your passion with something. While salaries on the


coast don't match London, nowhere has grown as rapidly as Dorset. The


focus now is what can be done to keep this digital economy in the


fast lane. Under the sport. Looking ahdad to

day up to about 14 degrees, maybe 15 in some spots. Through the course of

dry, but feeling fresh, and in the latter end of the working wdek, but
