Sharon Shoesmith: I had death threats after sacking


Former Haringey Council children's services director Sharon Shoesmith has spoken of how she received death threats after her sacking in the wake of the Baby Peter case.

She said she was "thrilled" to have won an appeal against a ruling that her sacking after Peter's death was lawful, and now the truth about what had happened to him could start to be told.

Judges said then Education Secretary Ed Balls and Haringey Council had been "procedurally unfair" when they sacked her three years ago.
