The family who claim their lother could have been saved but f`ilings

:00:00.:00:12.

at Southern Health allowed a tragedy to unfold.

:00:13.:00:19.

We had to go through this process and knowing there are other families

:00:20.:00:28.

in exactly the same failings and the trust still haven't got thehr act

:00:29.:00:29.

together. The bombings, the miscarriage

:00:30.:00:30.

of justice, and the newly-rdleased secret files which tell a ndw story

:00:31.:00:32.

and mean so much The truth matters. It has to matter

:00:33.:00:45.

because if it doesn't matter we live in her society that is ruled by

:00:46.:00:54.

anarchy. -- a society. Bouf`l brings it down brilliantly and he will curl

:00:55.:00:56.

it. Oh, what a goal! Saints' new signing

:00:57.:00:59.

and a piece of singular maghc. And the project trying to bring barn

:01:00.:01:05.

owls back. Her family say she had

:01:06.:01:18.

so much to live for. But Marion Munns became sevdrely

:01:19.:01:20.

depressed and one November night last year, she fell to her death

:01:21.:01:22.

from a motorway bridge. Today, at the end of her inpuest,

:01:23.:01:25.

the coroner criticised the Southern Health Trust

:01:26.:01:27.

for failing Marion. "Her death could have been

:01:28.:01:30.

prevented," they said, Our Health Correspondent

:01:31.:01:34.

David Fenton has been following the inquest

:01:35.:01:38.

from the start. He's live at Southern Health's

:01:39.:01:39.

headquarters tonight. Munns was a very ill woman who was

:01:40.:01:55.

let down by Southern help not because people didn't care, but

:01:56.:01:58.

because they didn't do what they should have done. Her familx

:01:59.:02:03.

believed that she may still be alive if she had been properly looked

:02:04.:02:04.

after. I think at death could

:02:05.:02:04.

have been prevented. They missed so many opportunities,

:02:05.:02:11.

so many professionals believed what my mum was saying when actually

:02:12.:02:13.

that wasn't the right way I'd like to take you back to the

:02:14.:02:26.

night of November 12 last ydar when Mrs Munns had called a family

:02:27.:02:31.

meeting. There were chaotic scenes, she became agitated and had to be

:02:32.:02:34.

pinned to the ground while her daughter tried to call the police

:02:35.:02:38.

and call for help from Southern help. Mrs Munson escaped, fled into

:02:39.:02:43.

the night and came to this bridge over the motorway. She climbed over

:02:44.:02:49.

the railings and felt her ddath on the road. It was a moment, `nd night

:02:50.:02:51.

that her will never forget. You just have to do what yot have

:02:52.:02:55.

to do, but I was very, very apprehensive because it

:02:56.:02:58.

wasn't my mum. But the problem is I have to live

:02:59.:03:00.

with that image of my mum on that last incident that

:03:01.:03:03.

I saw her and that will haunt.. Well, my mum said that she will

:03:04.:03:08.

haunt me for the rest of my life. In reality, it wasn't my mul,

:03:09.:03:12.

but it is still very, very hard What went wrong with her care? The

:03:13.:03:27.

coroner said in his narrative verdict there were three kex

:03:28.:03:32.

failings. Firstly, there was no real care plan for Mrs Munns. Secondly,

:03:33.:03:38.

her condition wasn't being reviewed as it should be. Thirdly, there was

:03:39.:03:44.

no crisis plan in place for when things went wrong, as they clearly

:03:45.:03:49.

did on November 12. Southern help that today they accepted thd coroner

:03:50.:03:53.

's findings and have since lade comprehensive changes to thd way

:04:12.:04:12.

the way it deals with patients and their loved ones.

:04:13.:04:17.

But some of the families interviewed for a new report,

:04:18.:04:20.

commissioned by the trust, have expressed scepticism

:04:21.:04:22.

Today, just a few miles from where the inquest took place,

:04:23.:04:25.

some of the relatives met with trust governors.

:04:26.:04:27.

I thought it was extremely inappropriate that you would even

:04:28.:04:31.

say that you might have adddd to our group as a family whdn you

:04:32.:04:34.

We are all, myself personally and all of us, are incredibly sorry.

:04:35.:04:39.

It's been a torrid 12 months for Southern Health -

:04:40.:04:41.

with a series of highly critical reports.

:04:42.:04:43.

Two chairmen and the Chief Executive have gone.

:04:44.:04:45.

Today, as the verdict in the Marion Munns case

:04:46.:04:47.

was delivered, some of the other families whose loved ones h`ve died

:04:48.:04:50.

while in Southern Health's care were meeting the Trust's

:04:51.:04:52.

Maureen Rickman - whose sister died back in 2011 -

:04:53.:04:57.

gave this reaction to today's comment by the coroner that

:04:58.:05:00.

Mrs Munns case should act as a wake-up call to the Trtst.

:05:01.:05:07.

How many wake-up call does the trust actually need?

:05:08.:05:09.

Again and again we keep hearing that things are going wrong

:05:10.:05:13.

at Southern Health and still we are hearing the same old story.

:05:14.:05:16.

Today the families were told what the Trust is doing

:05:17.:05:23.

Ian Hartley's son Edward didd while being looked after by a carer

:05:24.:05:28.

For us, I think this is encouraging but as I say, we have yet

:05:29.:05:36.

to see tangible action and that is what we hope

:05:37.:05:38.

A new report commissioned by the Trust is strongly crhtical

:05:39.:05:47.

of its relationship with falilies - saying things went wrong because:

:05:48.:05:51.

Our main concern is the fact the culture won't change if some

:05:52.:06:09.

of the, shall we say, long-standing directors

:06:10.:06:10.

We want to see change and ensure that it happens in a way

:06:11.:06:17.

that is conducive with the services that need to be delivered hdre.

:06:18.:06:25.

makes difficult reading - and the interim chief executive has

:06:26.:06:29.

said, "We know we need to ilprove and we are committed

:06:30.:06:31.

It was one of the worst miscarriages of justice in British history.

:06:32.:06:39.

Now, for the first time, thd BBC has gained access to secret filds,

:06:40.:06:43.

which contain new clues as to how four people were wrongly convicted

:06:44.:06:46.

of the Guildford pub bombings in the '70s.

:06:47.:06:48.

Gerry Conlon, along with his co-defendants,

:06:49.:06:51.

served 15 years in jail before the convictions were

:06:52.:06:53.

Our Home Affairs Corresponddnt Emma Vardy is live for us tonight

:06:54.:07:00.

This was once the horse and Groom pub and it was here 42 years ago

:07:01.:07:12.

that the first attack took place. It was at the height of the troubles in

:07:13.:07:17.

Northern Ireland but the subsequent wrongful convictions destroxed trust

:07:18.:07:23.

in the police. It was Gerry Conlon's dying wish that the files in this

:07:24.:07:25.

case be made public. In October 1974 bombs ripped

:07:26.:07:27.

through two Guildford pubs. Five people were killed

:07:28.:07:30.

and many more injured. Police were under pressure

:07:31.:07:33.

to apprehend the IRA bombers The police and army came

:07:34.:07:35.

in and kicked the door in. Ann McKernan was 14 when her brother

:07:36.:07:45.

Gerry Conlon was We were an ordinary catholic family

:07:46.:07:47.

grew up on the Falls Road There was no way that Gerry Conlon

:07:48.:07:54.

was involved in any bombs The accused were brought to court

:07:55.:08:06.

from police stations But the Guildford Four were found

:08:07.:08:13.

guilty and sentenced Charged as a result

:08:14.:08:16.

of Surrey Police investigathons In 1989, their moment

:08:17.:08:24.

of redemption came. The Court of Appeal overturned

:08:25.:08:27.

their convictions and For something I didn't

:08:28.:08:29.

know anything about. The case shattered confidence

:08:30.:08:41.

in the British legal system. The Guildford Four claimed they had

:08:42.:08:43.

been set up by corrupt police. An enquiry into the wrongful

:08:44.:08:48.

convictions was carried out by a High Court judge,

:08:49.:08:54.

Sir John May. But more than 700 files

:08:55.:09:02.

from his findings remained private, Now a Freedom of information request

:09:03.:09:05.

by the BBC has succeeded in securing the public

:09:06.:09:08.

release of six files. For the first time, they show some

:09:09.:09:16.

members of the enquiry refuse to accept that Gerry Conlon had not

:09:17.:09:19.

been a member of the IRA. Gerry was burning up

:09:20.:09:22.

inside that he never To him, it was an injustice piled

:09:23.:09:25.

on top of a whole heap The papers refer to the polhce

:09:26.:09:30.

intelligence from the time of the arrest which was

:09:31.:09:38.

never tested in court. They give us an indication that some

:09:39.:09:41.

of the problems that we had in the course of the case over many

:09:42.:09:48.

years, the persistent attempt to try and reconvict the Guildford Four,

:09:49.:09:52.

was still going on. I would like to see everythhng

:09:53.:09:59.

that Sir John May saw, the evidence given to him,

:10:00.:10:02.

or the documents produced to him so we can see

:10:03.:10:04.

what it was that he was abld to find out about the case and why ht went

:10:05.:10:08.

so badly wrong, why four young people were convicted

:10:09.:10:11.

of terrible offences and served an enormous period

:10:12.:10:14.

of time in prison. Being cleared was never enotgh,

:10:15.:10:19.

he wanted a public apology I am very sorry they were stbject

:10:20.:10:21.

to such an ordeal In 2005, the then Prime Minhster

:10:22.:10:31.

Tony Blair issued an apologx to the Guildford Four

:10:32.:10:39.

for the miscarriage of justhce. It was almost like a millstone had

:10:40.:10:41.

been taken from around my ndck. Gerry Conlon died two

:10:42.:10:46.

years ago aged 60. A former spokesperson for the IRA

:10:47.:10:58.

and biographer and friend of Gerry Conlon says

:10:59.:11:00.

there are now renewed calls for all 700 files to be placed

:11:01.:11:04.

into the public domain. It still matters because it was

:11:05.:11:07.

such a huge injustice. It matters to his sister and a lot

:11:08.:11:11.

of other people. The truth matters, it has to matter

:11:12.:11:14.

because if it doesn't matter, we live in a society

:11:15.:11:17.

that is ruled by anarchy. What the British government has

:11:18.:11:25.

done, they have destroyed mx family 42 years later and still

:11:26.:11:30.

not getting answers. The Home Office says the government

:11:31.:11:42.

is planning to release more files in 2020 but it may take many more

:11:43.:11:47.

years. There are still hopes those files may contain some answdrs to

:11:48.:11:50.

the questions that have surrounded the case for so long.

Now TV presenter Chris Tarr`nt is asking people to dig

:11:56.:11:57.

into their own pockets in stpport of a cause that's dear to hhs heart.

:11:58.:12:01.

Swings and Smiles is a Berkshire-based charity,

:12:02.:12:03.

providing a safe play space for hundreds of disabled

:12:04.:12:05.

Swings and Smiles is about play giving a chance for disabled

:12:06.:12:17.

children and even young adults with special needs to relax,

:12:18.:12:19.

be themselves and spend timd with their families and fridnds

:12:20.:12:21.

something most of us take for granted.

For the past two years, it has leased rooms inside ` council

:12:24.:12:26.

run building in Newbury, but it is not big or flexible enough

:12:27.:12:38.

sp there is a push to build bespoke centre of its own.

:12:39.:12:42.

I got involved with Swings and Smiles a couple of years

:12:43.:12:44.

ago and I just think what they do is extraordinary.

:12:45.:12:47.

I spent a lot of my time gohng down to London to black tie dinndrs

:12:48.:13:02.

for charities but this is a sweet outfit and what they have done

:13:03.:13:06.

from just a handful of extr`ordinary people, they've now got

:13:07.:13:08.

something like 300 families using this facility.

:13:09.:13:10.

They've done wonders here with virtually no help at all.

:13:11.:13:12.

They got a place which is fhne but they can only use it

:13:13.:13:16.

They need their own place bdcause what they do is extraordinary.

:13:17.:13:20.

Sian Cook set up the charitx because there was no

A potential development sitd has been offered to them nearby

:13:28.:13:30.

and they have made a good start on raising the money needed

:13:31.:13:33.

Luckily for us, we're 25% of the way through a recent initiative

:13:34.:13:41.

of restaurants and ?66,000 was raised in just one month

:13:42.:13:43.

We've now raised 116,000 and need to generate the rest within the next

:13:44.:13:48.

couple of years so we can open our permanent site.

:13:49.:13:51.

Meanwhile, this unique service continues to grow.

:13:52.:13:52.

Now even taking play equipmdnt out to families who can't come

Our Dorset reporter Simon Clemison has been looking at the county's

:15:26.:15:29.

royal relationship down the decades.

:15:30.:15:32.

Since the early days of her reign, the Queen has been taking the train

:15:33.:15:39.

to Dorset arriving here in Dorchester in 1952. Today, `t the

:15:40.:15:42.

age of 90, she may be same journey keeping along history of Roxal links

:15:43.:15:49.

thousand years. It is that human connection with a monocle arrives on

a Dorset Railway which has been so strong over the last 60 also years.

:16:05.:16:13.

-- a monarch who arrives. Stch is the atmosphere repeated with each

look, it says it all, brillhant turnout. We've been waiting a few

:16:36.:16:41.

hours to see her and it's lovely to see her come here on a train. We

development has grown significantly since the Queen last came in the

90s. She unveiled a statue of her late mother. Some want a different

elite field. It's just a nice way

to the sort of settle in. At the end of the day it is just

a game of golf and I've plaxed It does feel good playing in this
