    I'd recommend you find a few minutes to read about the role of Nottingham social worker Margaret Humphreys who has spent her life reuniting the "lost children" who were deported to Australia.

    These children were sent from the UK across the world to new lives in institutions where they were abused and used as forced labour.

    The inquest also heard six other teachers had come forward with safeguarding concerns before Shanay died, but felt they weren't being listened to.

    Ms Fielding said this was "unacceptable" and "weak" leadership by Mr Smalley, but when she was pushed on this by the coroner, she said she has "confidence" in the headteacher.  

    The inquest continues.

    A safeguarding form was "recreated" by two teachers following the death of seven-year-old Shanay Walker, Nottingham City Council's director of education has said.

    Sarah Fielding told an inquest into Shanay's death Southglade Primary School headteacher Peter Smalley and teaching assistant Laura Shreeves had "recreated" the form after it had gone missing in the days after Shanay's death.

    Shanay, who was a pupil at the Nottingham-based school, died in 2014 and  her aunt and grandmother were later jailed for cruelty.

    BBC Local Live

    Thankfully Terry is now better and has fully recovered from cancer, but Macmillan Cancer Support has said his story is not uncommon. 

    Lynda Thomas, the charity's chief executive, said: "It is heartbreaking that people in their 40s and 50s with cancer might have to go cap-in-hand to their parents to ask for money simply to keep a roof over their head or put food on the table. 

    "The cost of cancer is leaving people embarrassed, ashamed and dependent.

    "Borrowing money could cause tension among families at a time when people need support more than ever."

    He said: "Life before cancer had been comfortable. I'd worked hard and saved hard, but six months into an eight-month chemotherapy regime, our savings had dwindled to nothing and our finances had spiralled out of control. 

    "I had to claim benefits for the first time in my life, with the threat of our home being repossessed hanging over us."
