A DESPERATE family called cops after nurses "refused" to help a diabetic mum left in a soiled bed for three hours, reports claim. Debbie Petinou, 59, was allegedly left to lie in her own urine and faeces and ended up with the equivalent of third degree burns on her legs. She was also forced to remain in a chair on a ward for more than two weeks with blistered legs as the hospital couldn't find her the right bed, it is claimed. Her family finally snapped after the "dreadful neglect" at scandal-hit North Middlesex Hospital and called police on the 101 non-emergency line, The Mirror reports. Speaking from her bed, the mum-of-three, from Bounds Green, North London, said: "I just got to the end of my tether. It wasn't the first time I'd been left for hours like that. It had happened many times before. "I rang my youngest daughter and she called in and tried to talk to the staff but they kept shouting down at the phone at her and then hung up." The trust that runs the hospital … [Read more...] about Family call in police after diabetic mum was ‘left in her own mess for THREE HOURS by nurses who refused to help’
THE UK has seen a disturbing surge in acid attacks in recent years with London being the worst hit. There are plans to further restrict the sale of corrosive substances — but why are such brutal attacks on the rise? How common are acid attacks in the UK? The UK has one of the highest rates of acid attacks per capita in the world, according to Acid Survivors Trust International (ASTI). It claims the country does not have "tight controls on acid sales" or "legislation specific to acid attacks". ASTI's figures, quoting the police, reveal the number of recorded attacks has increased nearly three-fold from 228 recorded crimes in 2012 to 601 attacks in 2016. Last year was widely regarded as the worst ever with more than 400 incidents reported in the six months to April 2017 alone. Unlike in other countries, where 80 per cent of acid attacks are against women, in the UK most victims are men, ASTI says. Gang disputes are said to be behind the rise in acid attacks in London and other … [Read more...] about Acid attacks in the UK – where have they been carried out and is London the worst affected city?
JEREMY Corbyn paid tribute to a disgraced former UN official who linked Israel to the Boston bombings, The Sun can reveal. The Labour leader sat on a Palestinian Return Centre (PRC) panel at an event honouring Professor Richard Falk in 2013. The American worked as a special rapporteur with the UN Human Rights Council, and claimed that US foreign policy - including Israel - was to blame for the Boston Marathon bombing. Professor Falk, who also said America was behind an “apparent cover up” of 9/11, wrote in a 2013 blog post after the attack that left three dead, that the “American global domination project is bound to generate all kinds of resistance”. He went on to say in his post on the “marathon murders”: “As long as Tel Aviv (Israel’s capital) has the compliant ear of the American political establishment, those who wish for peace and justice in the world should not rest easy.” And he claimed that “in some respects the … [Read more...] about Jeremy Corbyn paid tribute to a disgraced ex-UN official who ‘blamed Boston bombings on Israel’
