'Mate crime' will not be tolerated in Warwickshire warn police chiefs as callous woman jailed

Police chiefs are warning so-called ‘mate crime’ will not be tolerated in Warwickshire.

The message comes after a callous woman targeted elderly and vulnerable men by ‘befriending’ them before burgling their homes and stealing from them.

Calculating Patricia McGoldrick pleaded guilty at Warwick Crown Court to two charges of burglary, one of theft and one of attempted theft.

The 38-year-old of no fixed address, who had a number of similar previous convictions, was jailed for four-and-a-half years.

The Learning Disabilities Mortality Review – Annual Report 2018

This is the third annual report of the English Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (LeDeR) programme. It presents information about the deaths of people with learning disabilities aged 4 years and over notified to the programme from 1 July 2016 – 31 December 2018.

The methodology of the LeDeR review process is inclusive of families of those with learning disabilities and recommends that all families should have the opportunity to be involved in the review of their relative’s death from the outset. Over three-quarters (81%) of families were invited to contribute to the review of their relative’s death in 2018.

In the period under review, 4,302 deaths were notified to the programme. In 2018, this was approximately 86% of the estimated number of deaths of people with learning disabilities in England each year.
