    Financial Secretary to the Treasury Jane Ellison told a debate at Westminster Hall that funding would be given "full consideration".

  10. Bournemouth baby murder case 'heartbreaking'

    The case of a Bournemouth father  found guilty of murdering his three-month-old son  has been described as "heartbreaking" by police.

    Winchester Crown Court heard Julian Hinz suffered severe skull fractures after being thrown against a hard surface last April. 

    Robert Hinz, 34, of Carysfort Road, told his trial he tried to revive his son who died in hospital the following day when doctors turned off his life support system.

    He will be sentenced at a later date.

    Robert Hinz
    Quote Message: A baby - just months old - is particularly vulnerable and needs almost constant attention and nurturing from its parents. Robert Hinz did not provide this protection. Instead he subjected his own son to months of violent episodes culminating in Julian's murder. This case is heartbreaking. My sincere thoughts are with the family of Julian, who has lost a son, brother and nephew. from Det Insp Richard Dixey Dorset Police
