£5m for children's services review

BBC Radio Oxford

Nearly £5m will be spent on an "ambitious" overhaul of children's services in Oxfordshire.

Experts in substance misuse, domestic abuse and adult mental health will work together to help families in the county.

The new way of working is designed to help spot struggling children earlier.

It's already been tried in Hertfordshire - where the number of children on protection plans has more than halved.

Oxfordshire County Councillors said it would be a shift from cure to prevention

Blue badge amnesty ahead of crackdown

Oxfordshire County Council is offering a temporary amnesty for people to hand in blue badge parking permits they are not entitled to.

The amnesty, from 11 to 22 February, comes ahead of a crackdown on fraudulent use of the badges which are issued to disabled drivers to help them park closer to their destination.

Community safety councillor Judith Heathcoat said: "The system is sometimes sadly abused by a minority, which affects those who rely on it.

"We would like to give the opportunity to people who may be misusing blue badges to dispose of them and avoid the risk of prosecution."

There are 21,000 blue badge holders in Oxfordshire.
