MP calls on government to do more after starvation death

Amy Woodfield

BBC News

Nottingham South MP Lilian Greenwood has called on the government to do more to help benefit claimants following the starvation death of a man who had his payments stopped.

Errol Graham, 57, was found dead by bailiffs weighing just four-and-a-half stone (28.5kg).

An inquest found the sudden loss of his income - and the subsequent threat of eviction - would have "caused huge distress".

Mr Graham's case was previously raised in the Commons by Debbie Abrahams MP, who called for an independent inquiry into cases where people had died following Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) reviews of their care.

Addressing prime minister Boris Johnson on Wednesday, Labour MP Ms Greenwood said: "The first priority of government is to keep its citizens safe - how many more vulnerable benefit claimants will have to die before his government starts to value their lives?"

In response, Mr Johnson said Mr Graham's death was a "tragic case", adding £36m had been allocated to improve the DWP's safeguarding and decision-making, including the introduction of a serious case panel to review its work.

Nottingham South: Labour hold

Lilian Greenwood has been re-elected as the MP for Nottingham South, with a decreased majority.

The Labour candidate beat Conservative Marc Nykolyszyn by 12,568 votes, 2,594 votes less than the majority at the 2017 election.

Barry Holliday of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Brexit Party's John Lawson came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 7.1 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 48,000 people, 60.6% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Two of the five candidates, John Lawson (The Brexit Party) and Cath Sutherland (Green) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Lillian Greenwood: Labour must offer a real alternative

Alex Regan

BBC News

Lillian Greenwood has retained Nottingham South for Labour but with a reduced majority.

Across the country many of her colleagues are having a torrid night. In her victory speech she admitted: "Labour must reflect and rebuild and offer a real alternative, and I intend to be part of that process."

"Most of all this is going to be devastating to those who needed a change in government," she added.

"For those who are in poverty, for those who are left without the public services they need, for those young people who feel they have no chance of a house, or home of their own, and for future generations who need a government that’s going to tackle the climate emergency."

There were over 28,000 unsold tickets for the national team's last game at Wembley, a 1-0 World Cup qualifying victory over Slovenia.

The letter reads: "We appreciate the work the FA does in the community, but there is more to be done.

"Where they can foresee large blocks of empty seats at Wembley - they need to commit to giving these to schools across the country."
